DESIGN TECHNOLOGY BLOG: 5,4,3,2,1 BLAST OFF!

6th February 20

The Prep 1 pupils had a rocketing visit to the Design Technology Workshop in the Senior School this week!

The aim of their visit was to make rockets and launch them across the flower beds of middle ground. With the help of Mr Irwin and Mrs Gardner, the pupils drew their rocket designs before getting hands on gluing their rocket bodies onto the chassis before getting highly creative decorating them with vinyl and card. Once completed it was outside to the launch pad. The pupils, appropriately dressed in the correct safety gear, launched their rockets from a crossbow sled.

All pupils launched their own rockets with the goal of clearing the rose bed…no one quite managed it, but all flew well. The top three were Millie, Ollie and Hannah. Well done on the successful rockets, next time hopefully we can get them even further.
