Year 5 – Rockets

We have been loving our topic this half term “What is really out there?”. We have been looking at the effects of air resistance and decided to build a rocket. However, something interesting happened! We bumped into Year 2 and they had explained that they are learning about gliders and are going to be making one. But, they weren’t sure about which wing design would be the most suitable for their gliders and year 5 weren’t sure about what material would be the most suitable for our rockets. So we set each other the task to test out each other’s enquiry question.

Here are the images of a Year 5s investigation.

Next week we will be giving Year 2 our findings. Check back in with us then to see how we’ve done.
