Up, up and away with Year 5 at Epsom College

Posted on: 24 Jan 2019 by Weston Green School | Category: Key Stage 2, Year 5

Up, up and away with Year 5 at Epsom College

Year 5 were very excited on Thursday as they headed off to Epsom College for a special Science Workshop. Having seen the inspiring Physics teachers from Epsom College at Weston Green last year, the children were eager to find out what they would be doing and how they were going to further their scientific knowledge. 

Set the challenge of seeing how high and how far they could track a high altitude balloon, Year 5 firstly asked the Physics experts some well thought through questions about how best to complete their task. Working in groups to investigate materials that provide insulation, the children needed to decide the best material to cover their transmitter with, when sent on its journey.

Year 5 will now track the balloon to see how high and how far the balloon travels.
