OUR ROCKETS

We made simple water rockets, designed a sleeve, fins and a nose cone. As you can see releasing them was great fun!

We looked at the distance they travelled, the reasons they spun, wobbled and turned. We learnt about thrust, air resistance and gravity, then we compared the difference when we used different amounts of water.

How many of you will design a new rocket during half term?
