Year 5 - Technology

Design Technology:
In line with the theme of ‘journeys and transport’, Year 5 evaluated the structure of NASA rockets to help them design their own authentic rocket which would be streamlined to cut through the air easily. Children chose from a range of recyclable materials to create various shapes and features of rockets which they then used in a ‘World Cup’ style tournament. The tournament involved children launching their rockets to see which would travel the highest and therefore the quickest into space.
