Class 5

Our topic during term 1 was 'Stargazers'.  We spent two weeks making and preparing our rockets ready for launch.  To make our rockets we picked out a clean empty bottle for the main body of the rocket. Then we started decorating the rockets with wings, bottle noses and NASA signs and plenty of others.  Finally they were finished and ready to be launched up into the sky.  We had to pump our rockets with air for what seemed like ages and then we realised that the connector was leaking air.  We had to abandon our attempts for the day but luckily we tried again after half term with much more success!
