We had a wonderful rocket morning.
We set up our room yesterday. Everyone was responsible for a table on which there was a space item. We each had to talk about this item with our parents, visitors and other visiting classes.
We had demonstrations on:
how to launch elastic foam rockets
how craters are formed and how dinosaurs died
how gravity causes objects to fall
The last part of our rocket morning involved launching the big air and water rockets in the yard outside. The whole school came to see this. It was soooooo exciting!
We lost our two water rockets. After several goes both rocket landed on the roof. Mike our long suffering caretaker has already rescued one and will rescue the other one some time when he gets a longer ladder!
What a wonderful morning.
Well done to all in Ms. McLoughlin's, Ms. Coade's and Ms. Geraghty's classes for the wonderful rocket morning!
