Federation STEM day
To bring our learning of The Race to Space to an end, we took part in a federation STEM day. Firstm we played some tram building games to allow us to get to know each other. Applying our knowledge of friction and forces, which linked to our Science learning, we took part in a range of challenges. Creating balloon rockets, we explored the distance they could travel and tested different things that may have an impact on the distance travelled, we had lots of questions and suggestions! We also created parachutes to get Tim Peake back to Earth safely and space shuttles that could carry an egg or three to symbolise the number of astronauts that may be onboard!
