Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

Brilliant Blurbs and Flying Force!

For Science this term, our topic has been "We are Astronauts!" We have been looking at how force propels rockets into space. To demonstrate force, we asked the children to do an experiment using a balloon! The experiment needed a length of string drawn tightly between two objects. A drinking straw  was to be attached to the top of a blown up balloon and the string was threaded through the drinking straw. Children were advised not to tie the end of the balloon but simply to hold the balloon closed at one end of the string. As the children let go of the balloon, the air inside the balloon propelled the balloon forward along the piece of string! The pictures below are a before and after of the experiment:

Here are some more pictures of the experiments shared by the children. 

 

To finish off our story, "I Was A Rat!", we asked the children to write a blurb for the story. A blurb is meant to entice someone into reading a story. It is similar to a mini advert for the book!

Here are some wonderful examples written by the children...

 

 

We wish you a happy and healthy half-term and hope you all enjoy a well-earned break!

See you next term...
