Year 6 Science Crossphase Rocket Launch

 

Our annual Science crossphase project ended this week with 100% success in the launching of rockets build by a number of year 6 pupils from our feeder primary schools. About thirty two pupils were involved in the event which ran for five weeks after school, led by Mr Munroe. Parents and carers turned out on a beautiful afternoon to watch the launch. The prize for landing their rocket closest to the target were Bradley and Joe from Buxted and Little Horsted.
