Year 4 Scientists  Dive into the World of Forces and Rocket Science

The Year 4 students have been engaging in an exploration of forces and rocket science this term. The budding scientists are unravelling the mysteries of motion, friction, and aerospace dynamics through a series of captivating experiments and hands-on activities.

Each week, the students embark on experiments designed to uncover the secrets of forces and motion. One of the experiments was testing various surfaces for friction, including grass, carpet, concrete, and sand. These experiments aim to provide the students with a practical understanding of how different surfaces influence movement and the application of force.

One of the highlights of this term’s science curriculum held on Tuesday is the “Its Rocket Science” incursion. The young scientific minds ventured into the captivating realm of aerospace exploration, guided by the invisible forces of air. This hands-on experience allows them to delve into the principles of flight trajectories, basic aerodynamics, and the power of propulsion. The pinnacle of the incursion culminated in the launch of the students’ very own bottle rockets. These innovative rocketeers harnessed the force of thrust to propel their creations skyward, reaching for the stars in a spectacular display of scientific mastery.

“This term’s curriculum is all about fostering a deep understanding of forces and motion through hands-on experiences,” “We’re thrilled to see our young scientists actively engage with the principles of physics and aerospace exploration. It’s an unforgettable journey of discovery and learning.”

As the Year 4 students embark on this captivating scientific odyssey, they are not only gaining valuable insights into the world of forces and rocketry but also cultivating a passion for learning that will undoubtedly propel them to new heights in their educational journey.
