The Bubble Boy

This half term our work will be focussed around the story ‘The Bubble Boy’ by Stewart Foster.


The children will consider the needs of the main character from a scientific perspective. We will find out how different materials can be used to help people and will learn about technology in context.


We launched the topic with a 'Marvellous Medicine Day'

We used UV-sensitive beads to test different materials in the hopes of finding one which would protect Joe from harmful sunlight.  We then designed feature-packed suits for him!
