As part of the IPC topic of ‘A to B‘ Year 2 pupils made their own rockets. They wrapped a tube of paper around a plastic film canister and then cut pieces of coloured card to make the fins and nose cone of the rockets. Once their designs were complete they went outside to launch the rockets!! They turned their rockets upside down and with their teachers help they filled the canister 1/3 full with water and then put a 1/2 tablet of Alka-Seltzer inside. They put the lid on and moved away from the table to watch their rocket fly into the air. They put the lid on and moved away from the table to watch their rocket fly into the air. It was very exciting with children counting down each launch and seeing who’s rocket went the highest!
