Flying objects

DSCF0518

Year 6 have been making the most of all this sunny weather and taking part in both constructing and testing various flying objects. Early last week we made zappy zoomers which fits in with our extended topic on Air Resistance. The children learned that smooth, streamlined shapes allow air to flow around them easily.

Later on in the week we made paper aeroplanes. The children were allowed to use whichever template they wanted to, based on their understanding of streamlined shapes. We lined up on the field and tested our models, it was great fun and some of them went an incredibly long way!
