Rocket Launch – Year 2 and Year 5

Rocket Launch – Year 2 and Year 5

Year 2 and Year 5 enjoyed working with David, a local scientist, to build rockets. They worked in small groups using card tubes for the body of their rockets. Using tape, they sealed the end so air couldn’t escape and made fins to help make the rocket fly further. The best part was flying the rockets ….. what fun we all had!

Fun with Rockets – Year 1 and Year 6

Today we had a visit from David the scientist. The children from Year 6 and Year 1 came together to build their very own rockets. The children were split into groups of 4 and 5 and used card tubes for the body of their rocket. Then, they used sticky tape and cardboard fins to help their rocket to fly as high and as far as possible.

Today, Year 3 and Year 4 were able to become real life scientists. With help from David, our scientist friend, the children were able to build their very own rockets and launch them on the school yard. The children used card tubes for the body of their rocket. First, they needed to seal the end so that air pressure could not escape. Then, they used sticky tape and cardboard fins to help make their rocket fly further. Finally we gathered outside to launch all of the rockets.

Space Camp Workshops

Year Five had an amazing opportunity this week. As part of the visit from Space Camp Sam, they had the opportunity to train as an astronaut ! They undertook a carousel of activities involving translating Russian, precision training, memory training, dexterity training and mission patches. Thankfully, they all passed !

We were lucky enough to welcome Space Camp Sam earlier this term. She came in to talk to us about Space, her Space Camp project and about the work of the late Professor Stephen Hawking.

Sam taught us lots of amazing and cool facts about space and the different planets and moon!
