Autumn 1


This week we went outside and took some photographs to show signs of autumn.

We then had a rocket experiment. We looked at an alka-seltzer tablet and what happened to it when water was added. Then we watched as Miss Bushrod put a tablet in a rocket tube, added water and then put the lid on the tube. After a short time the rocket shot up in the air. We repeated the experiment and then did it with two rockets - one went off quicker than the other. Finally we tried one rocket with a tablet and one without. We predicted that the one without the tablet would not do anything and we were correct!
