End of year treat!

This afternoon Year 2 Toucans and Year 1 Puffins got together for an end of year treat. We all went onto the field for a fun picnic! We had a lovely time playing games together and then enjoyed some food. It was very hot so when we got back inside we had an extra special treat – everyone had an ice lolly to help them keep down.

What a wonderful afternoon!

Rockets to the moon

Year Two have been making straw rockets. They got a pencil and rolled paper around the pencil. Then they sellotaped the edge and folded the top over two times to make sure there were no holes at the top so that no air would escape.They then sellotaped a rocket fin to the end. They took the rockets outside put a straw inside the rocket and blew as hard as they could to see how far the rocket would fly.

Here are the instruction so that you can have a go too.

Flying fish!!

Year 2 made different sized flying fish from paper. The class talked about how they were going to make their fish fly and the best way to make the fish fly the furthest. They started with their biggest fish and threw them from different heights. They then experimented with other fish but in order to make it a fair test they made sure that they threw the fish from the same heights and places. Amelia and Ke Xin found that if you spread the tail fin apart the fish flew even further. Shona and Kerris found that the biggest fish flew further because it caught more air as it was the biggest fish.
