Today is the start to British Science Week. Its runs from the 11th to the 20th of March.
During this week we will be doing a few little science activities as well as running some competitions.
As its the first day I would like to invite you all to our first little competition. I want you to all take Lily and I to the Moon and build us a ROCKET!
It can be made out of whatever you like, as big as you like and as creative as you like. On the 20th of March one Rocket Scientist will win a Easter Egg to enjoy for Easter!

For a little inspiration here is the rocket we made yesterday.
We Used - Toilet Rolls, Paint, Tape, Red Tissue Paper, Empty Cake Packets, Bottle tops.
First I let Lily paint the toilet rolls.
After they had dried I then taped all 3 toilet rolls together.
I then stuck down the empty cake packets and bottle tops, to make windows. Lily helped with the sticking by pressing down the tape.
We used the red paper for the fire coming out the bottom of the rocket and taped this inside.
Figuring out how to make the pointy top was the trickiest bit. In the end I cut a piece of paper into a Tear shape and let Lily decorate it with crayons and silver stickers. I then rolled it up and stuck it to the top.
This was our finished result. Not bad for Lily's first rocket, although I helped a lot. Lily loved her rocket and she was zooming it around the room going Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
We can't wait to see your rockets!
