We have been reading ‘Pattan’s pumpkin’. In the story, Pattan has an amazing pumpkin that keeps growing until it is a tall as the mountains. Pattan and his wife and their animals float away to safety in their pumpkin when there is a great flood.

Today we tested out the buoyancy of some different fruits and vegetables. We predicted which we thought would float or sink and then investigated. We were surprised to find out that the honey dew melon floated but that the cherry tomatoes and plums did not.
