What an amazing morning of rocket races in Foundation Stage. The children have had a fabulous time shooting their Stay and Play rockets into the sky. 

They stretched their learning muscles to explore how much pressure to apply to the foot pump and they learnt that it takes a lot of effort.

They used their counting skills to count the number of pumps needed to reach the required air pressure and then  3…2…1 release!

They discussed whose rocket went the highest and whose travelled the furthest, using lots of mathematical language.

Ask them to tell you all about it.
