To infinity...and beyond!
Okay - so we didn't manage to send a rocket to space...but we had lots of fun designing and making our own rockets that were sent high into the sky!
What is Gravity?
Team Finch have been working hard this week on Gravity and Air Resistance. We began by drawing diagrams in our books to show how gravity works. Then we learned about it, and did an experiment using helicopters. What can do to change the balance between gravity and air resistance?
Well done to Streethouse Primary for a fantastic Science week 2021. This week we've been writing about famous Scientists, and performing experiments all across the school. Take a look at the slideshow below to see our work.

A high-quality Science education provides foundations for understanding the world. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity. Through building key foundational knowledge and concepts, pupils should be encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. They should be encouraged to understand how key knowledge and concepts can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes. This understanding should be consolidated through their appreciation of applications of Science in society and the economy.
