Testing Paper Aeroplanes and Creating Moving Vehicle Artwork

This week as part of our English and Topic learning the children have been discussing different ways they can test their paper aeroplanes. They have explored the use of a paper clip, which acts as a weight to make their plane fly further. They carried out three different tests to find out which paper aeroplane could: fly the furthest; make a perfect landing by landing on a target and fly through hoops.
The children discussed how to make the tests fair: only using one paper clip; starting from the same point and having the same number of attempts. The results were recorded in a table and the children were able to write simple concluding statements.
