To infinity and beyond!

This afternoon, Mrs Hudd’s class celebrated science week by doing a ‘Rocket Mice’ investigation linked to forces. They voted on a 3 different bottles to be used and predicted which would be best for allowing their very own mouse to travel as high as possible. They made some really sensible suggestions based on the amount of air inside each bottle as well as the type of plastic each was made from. When their tested their own mice, there were some astounding results with the milk container allowing one mouse named ‘Jeff’ to hit the touch of the portacabin ceiling which is an incredible 2.5m tall! A fun afternoon was had by all! Parents of Year 6, don’t forget to join us tomorrow afternoon at 2.45pm – I hope you’re paper plane making skills are ready!
