Build Your Own Rocket

We made today 'project day'. That means the children get to decide what we do - one big project - all day.  Francesca chose to build a rocket.

We did it! Well, we got as far as building the structure, ready to decorate it. I'm envisaging some red paint and some kitchen foil silver stripes...

Anyway, I haven't got time to go into the details right now, but here's how we did it, in pictures:

Please note the door-closing mechanism, designed and implemented by Francesca!


  1. It's quite amazing. Much better than I could have thought possible. Well done everyone.

  2. Oh, I love it! The door is great!

  3. Well, I've got to say, we surprised ourselves. When Francesca was doing 'Best and Worst' tonight she said that her best bit was 'all day' - result!
