Oak class had a fantastic workshop with Mr Thomas from Abingdon School. The children explored the impact of reading the weight of balloon (filled with water) in the air and in a bowl of water and calculated the relationship between Newtons (N) and grams (g).
After our session, the children designed a paper rocket. They then went outside tested and how high their paper rocket would go using a foot pump.
The children thoroughly enjoyed the session - some of the children have decided to explore forces further in their own time which is great to see!
