Year 5 have begun their next mini mission! We are going to learn all about our solar system and whether humans could live on mars…We are trying to recreate the solar system out of sweets. I wonder how much we know?!

Year 5 have also been making and testing their own rocket launchers. They worked in groups to follow the instructions and build their launchers. Then it was onto the playground to see how far the rockets would go!

We have been making landing gear for our rocket and astronaut (cup and marshmallow). We have only been allowed to use the materials provided and are not allowed to stick the astronaut in the cup or cover the opening.
