Aiming High to Excel and Exceed

Class Knights rocket explosions

In science we have been investigating different forces; in particular upthrust and gravity. We made our own rockets out of plastic drinks bottles, filled them partly with water then pumped air into them using a bicycle pump to see how far they would travel. Part of the challenge was to decide how much water we should put inside in order to make the rockets a success!
