5th Class had great fun investigating, exploring and creating for Science Week 2020.

At the beginning of the week we used the Lego WeDo kits to create satellites, robots and windmills. We first had to create our Lego model. We then used Bluetooth to connect our creations to tablets. From there we could program our Lego creations. We could make them move, spin, change colour and make noises.

We have been learning all about Space. One child in the class cashed in their Dojo Points to teach the class a lesson. He chose to teach us about rockets and how they launch. He recorded a video of himself playing a rocket simulator and presented it to the class. We were all fascinated and loved his lesson!

We researched our own information about space using the tablets. Each child in the class researched a different planet. We created a short presentation based on this.

Later in the week we decided to make our own paper rockets. We created these using pencils, paper and masking tape. We measured how far they could fly by launching them via a straw. We had great fun trying to make them go as far as possible. We are planning to change something about our rockets this week and see does this change how far the rocket can fly.

    It sounds like you were very busy during Science Week. I’ve no doubt the Science lesson based on the rocket simulator was very interesting – something I would love to have seen! Great work all round, well done.
