Senior Infants have spent a lot of time learning about Space last month.

One of our lesson was making a rocket from paper, a straw and sellotape. We wanted to see if we cold blow the rocket off the straw using air from our mouths.

We had to investigate to see which position to place the straw and how much breath to use to ‘launch’ the rocket.

Once we found the best way to blow the rocket we wanted to see who could blow it the furthest.

We all went into the hall and in small groups, stood at the one point to make it fair. Then we launched our rockets on the count of 3, and whoever had the rocket that flew the furthest went to one side.

Finally, the finalist all went up against each other and there was one over all winner. We had lots of fun investigating forces through rocket launching.
