Achieve, Believe, Care and Dream

Week 4

This week Indigo Class worked together to make water bottle rockets! We thought about how to make them aerodynamic and then carefully measured different amounts of water to pour into the bottles!

We went outside and used our very special rocket launcher to pump air inside our rockets and then watched them explode into the sky! It was amazing! We thought about all the different variables that could have affected our experiment, like the shape of the rockets, the amount of water they contained and the power/pressure applied to the foot pump!

In maths we have been learning lots about division and how to solve problems using our jottings and our times tables! The children are getting very confident now, some are even solving division problems with remainders! (Check out the rainbow link on the class home page for an explanation of how we use our jottings method smiley)
