Wow that was exciting!
At the culmination of our topic on famous people, Today Year 2 launched their rockets on the school field. We have learned about famous people in the sciences, arts, sports, politics, maths and history. In recent weeks in history we have compared the explorations of Christopher Columbus and Neil Armstrong and the development of transport from the Wright Brothers to today’s focus on the famous inventor, Wernher Von Braun. Some extremely interesting questions and discussion ensued when the children learned that Wernher Von Braun first designed the V-2 rocket for Nazi Germany before he went on to design the Saturn V for the United States!
I hope the children enjoy sharing the videos below with you.
