Rocket Week in Year 3

Rocket Week in Year 3

Year 3 had a wonderful week studying rockets. The children looked at shape poems and designed their own version based on bonfire night. They also wrote an acrostic poem all about rocket fireworks.  

In Science Year 3 were challenged to make their paper firework shoot across the classroom using only some string, a balloon and a straw. Shrieks of delights could be heard as the pupils tested out their ideas!


Maths lessons were centred on the theme of ‘angles and directions’ in order to send a rocket up into space. Finally the pupils enjoyed creating a Space Rocket poster in the ICT room using Publisher.


What a busy week!
