Reception - Outdoor Rocket Launch!

In Reception we have been learning all about space. Today the children got to take part in a wonderful science experiment outdoors.  In our classes we used different sized bottles to make the rocket so between us we could make comparisons.  Each one was filled with the same amount of vinegar and bicarbonate of soda to make it fair.  The children make predictions about which sized bottle would go higher; the bigger bottle or the smaller bottle.  We mixed the ingredients and watched the rockets take off to the moon!
