STEM Week Day 4 Kestrel Class
On Thursday Kestrel Class built a water rocket and placed one of their surviving eggs carefully wrapped up inside. Everyone was very excited to fire the rocket, but sadly there were some problems and the rocket would just not fly! We decided to try again at the end of the day after a few adjustments could be made.
After lunch Kestrel worked in teams to design a house for the chicks in 'The Chicken's Den' (Dragon's Den). They all came up with some fantastic ideas and we are hoping one day these designs can be bought to life.
Once again year 2 went to the playground to fire their rockets... they would just not fly! Even Mr Saunders had a go, he was unsuccessful too. After a long discussion, Year 2 came to the conclusion that the egg was just too heavy and this was preventing the rocket from flying! Next time we'll leave the egg out.
Most of the chicks hatched too which was very exciting!
