On Wednesday of last week, year 6 pupils were finally able to take their first steps into the study of Rocket Science when they mixed various solids and liquids to create very carefully controlled explosions. Following a safety  instruction briefing from class teacher Mrs Emmerson-Friend, the class of ‘mad scientists’ donned safety goggles and took to the little tarmac which became mission control and launch pad for the lesson as the children mixed their ingredients and launched their rockets high into the air.
