Space Day – Wednesday 5th June
Class 3 and 4 had so much fun during their Space Day on Wednesday. After watching a short film about Space, their first task was to create a tray of food suitable for an astronaut to eat in whilst in Space. The food had to be securely attached to the tray so that, when the children tested them upside down, nothing would fall out. Also, food had to be not too flaky as the crumbs would float around! Other criteria included a balance of food groups as well as pleasing aesthetics!
Then they conducted a scientific investigation to see which was the best straw to carry the balloon rocket along a piece of string. It was noisy, fun and full of friction!
Class 3 and Class 4 worked together in pairs and small teams during the day and it was wonderful to see their collaboration, creativity and enjoyment.
To round off the day, the children began to design a moon buggy. They will continue this DT project next week – we can’t wait to see their finished vehicles!
Well done everyone!
