Updated Jet Propelled Cable Car Presentation

Check out our photos of the Cable Car experiment.

Our beautiful hot air balloons

This term we have been learning about Flight and our theme is on Up, Up and Away. As part of our Art unit we have been making Hot Air Balloons. They have taken at least 6 weeks to make. The end results look great and look lovely hanging in the classroom. We have got a third made around 12 Hot Air Balloons, but by the end of the week there will be more photographs on display. So watch this space.

How far can your jet propelled cable car travel?



This week we have been making jet propelled cable cars. We first made a rectangular prism and a triangular prism. We glued the prisms together to make a cable car. From there we had to thread a fishing line through a straw, stick the cable car onto the straw and blow up a balloon really big. We attached the blown up balloon to the cable car and let it take off. Tyler did really well with his cable car with a distance of
8 metres. Piripi's, Kifi's, Pace's and Miss Chapman's cable cars travelled the same distance which was 7 metres. Fine's cable car travelled the shortest distance which was 3 metres. It was a fun activity letting the balloon off and measuring whose cable car travelled the furthest.

Making a jet propelled cable car

Today we made a jet propelled cable car. We made these 3D nets first which were: a Rectangular Prism and a Triangular Prism. From there we had thread some fishing line through a straw, stick the cable car roof to the straw and then stick the base of the cable car to a blown up balloon. On the count of five we had to let go of the balloon and watch the cable car travel at great speeds. It was great fun and the cable car went as far as 8 metres. Check out our photographs of this experience.

Room 5's Paper plane Challenge



Today we had a fun time measuring paper planes on the court. We had to make sure that our foot was touching the yellow line on the court. We marked this line as the take off line. Each student threw their dart and Miss Paton used her chalk to mark the landing point. We found out that Piripi threw his dart the furthest with a measurement of 11.16m and San Tat's dart flew the shortest with a measurement of 2m.
