5…4…3…2…1…Blast Off!

This week, we have put our designs to the test and created and launched our own Space Rockets!  We used our resourceful and reflective thinking to build our rockets using the most suitable materials and sticking as closely to our designs as possible.  We then headed to the field to launch our rockets in turn.  We tried to aim for Mars but feel we may have work to do on our stabilisers and launch directions…

Some of us have not had chance to launch our rockets as some adjustment is needed to enable them to fit on our launch site, ready for a re-launch next week.

Have a look at our design process and watch the launches below!

Who knows, we may have some budding future rocket engineers in our midst!

    What a cool lesson! Nice one Mrs Hill – I’m sure the children will remember this learning!
