‘Rocket Day’ for Year 5

Year 5 recently went to King Edward VI Five Ways school to learn about Rockets as part of National Science and Engineering week. They had a really super time and learnt a lot too! They made rockets using an empty film canister, an Alka Seltzer tablet and some water. They made quite a mess and the canisters were shooting off towards the hall ceiling!! The also made some rockets out of cardboard and launched them across the playground using a compressor. The ones made by Kitwell flew the highest and the furthest. Kitwell also had chance to see a real space rocket called “Starchaser” that will be sent into space later this year. Year 5 were disappointed that they couldn’t go inside it, though!
