5 Blue’s rocket launch 🚀

Today in 5 Blue, the children were given the exciting task of launching their own rockets using film canisters, effervescent tablets and water! 

It was great fun- even if our launches weren’t all quite perfect! 

Challenge: who can remember the name of the force we were creating? How did we make this force? 

If we were to do this activity again- how could we get our rockets to go higher?

Well done 5 Blue 👍🌟

Ps- thank you Mr Inman for the fantastic video 👍

  1. The name of the force we were creating was called thrust. If we were to do this again I think we coul have less bits on so it creates the thrust properly.

  2. 1.The force we made was thrust.We made it by mixing effervescent tablets with water which created a chemical reaction.
    2.If we were to do this again, I would crush the effervescent tablets.

  3. The force we were creating was called thrust.We created this force by mixing effervescent tablets with water which caused a chemical reaction,this caused the film canisters to pop,Therfore making the rockets fly into the sky.

    If I were were to do this activity again I would make my rocket smaller and I would also ground up my effervescent tablets.

  4. Really enjoyed watching this. It looked great fun. The instructions were simple and clear, I followed them well. Liked the new vocabulary. Loved the testing, perhaps next time wear safety Google’s? Umaiyah your review and conclusion was spot on.
