Year 5 are having way too much fun with their science project and the year 5 classrooms have become home to a number of very interesting experiments.  We have been carrying out flower opening tasks with different materials, finding ways to separate salt and sand through a variety of interesting methods and yesterday saw the class undertake a very risky job involving eggs!

Their task was to protect their egg as best they could as it was launched across the school playground.  This challenge was made harder with the children only being allowed to use a very specific amount of materials per group.  They included 4 pieces of paper, 1 piece of card, 2m of string, 1 balloon, 1 sheet of sticky labels and a sheet of newspaper.  The children were very resourceful and we had some very interesting egg protectors.

The results were brilliant -take a look!



Some didn’t make it!

Some survived!
