Fizzy Rockets

We made fizzy rockets to explore Isaac Newton’s third law of motion. We made rocket fuel by mixing effervescent tablets (berocca) with warm water. This caused a chemical reaction releasing a gas, carbon dioxide, within the body of our rockets. The pressure from the gas then built up until there was enough force to push the lid down and the rocket up. We found that the longer it took for the gas to build up, the higher and faster the rockets flew.

Enterprise Cafe

As part of our ‘World of Work’ topic, we had an enterprise cafe in school. The children all applied for a job at the cafe by submitting a written application form. They they had to go for an interview for the post they applied for. All the children were given one of the following posts:

  • Head Chef
  • Sous Chef
  • Kitchen Assistant
  • Cafe Manager
  • Waitress/Waiter

The children’s families all phoned up and booked a table and on the day the children were in charge of working together as a team to run the cafe successfully.

We really enjoyed our first residential school trip to Voxter. The weather was lovely! We built dens in the woods, toasted marshallows, played outside, had a treasure hunt, a scavenger hunt, went swimming, went to the playpark, played rounders and went to the Mid Brae Inn for tea. 🙂

We do class presentations 3 times a year. This builds our confidence when speaking to an audience and develops our research skills and our presentation skills. We have to plan a presentation with a beginning, middle and ending and think about:

  • giving the audience eye-contact
  • using pictures, drawings and props
  • speaking loud and clear
  • varying the pace & tone of our voice
