STEAM Week

Phil, from Steam Ahead Education, came into Year 5 and helped us to build our own rockets. The children had to build a prototype then test it using a rocket launcher. They then discussed improvements which could be made to make the rocket more effective. 
The children have been exploring reversible and irreversible changes in Science. They carried out an investigation into which materials would dissolve. 
The children have been reasoning about 3D shapes. We looked at a range of nets then built the shapes. The children discussed the similarities and differences between the shapes.
