School Launch

As we have been reading "Aquilla" by Andrew Norris we designed, built and decorated our own rockets (made from foam and card) and launched them using Pop bottles. Some went super fast and far whilst others never left the launch pad (due to not being air tight). We had great fun and the children are now wanting to take rocket building to the next level...WATCH THIS SPACE!

As part of our instructional text work we carefully followed a set of instructions to build rocket launchers and paper rockets before creating our own easy to follow instructions. Bossy Verbs (imperative) and time connectives were of importance as were simple diagrams and clear guidance. We successfully launched our rockets after our Big Write on Friday, the rockets are currently still in orbit.
