Still image for this video
Jake and his dad, researched how to create a rocket which could 'blast off'. They found a design that allowed them to fill the rocket with a small amount of water and pump air into it. The rocket then blasted off! We all enjoyed watching Jake's rocket fly up through the sky.

Science Materials -11/10/18

This week we have been using interactive QR codes to research facts about materials in our environment. We were able to scan the codes and this gave us a quiz that helped us find out more about materials in our environment.
