Starchaser Rocket

British Science Week’s theme for 2018 is 'Exploration and Discovery'.  The children of Buckton Vale had an extremely exciting day when we had a real rocket on the school playground!  Starchaser visited school and brought their Skybolt 2 rocket which was launched on 11th September 2017.

Ash class went outside to view and find out about the rocket and then created fact files. We really enjoyed the rocket making workshop and especially launching our own rockets on the school field.  The air propulsion was so powerful that the rockets we made shot off too fast to capture them flying up!
