We all worked in pairs to finish our Space Display. Every pair had a topic to research, and had to make a title, a picture and a piece of writing about the thing. Thankfully, we had a lot of books from the school library, as well as ones that pupils kindly brought in, to read from. We love our display!
We made rockets using fizzy vitamin tablets and yoghurt drink bottles. The tablet and the water worked together in the bottle to make carbon dioxide gas, and this built up inside the bottle until it was strong enough to pop the lid off and send the bottle into the air in the opposite direction!
Real rockets work like this, shooting the astronauts up into space!
We are looking at lots of books about our Solar System this week, and in one of our lessons we compared the sizes of the planets. To give us an idea, our teacher cut up different fruits and we looked at how big or small they were. Afterwards, we labelled them to match their planets!
(Our watermelon got mouldy very fast! We had to throw it out quickly!)
