Bloodhound SCC

18 October 2016 Written by

On Monday year 5 went on an inspiring Science trip to Bloodhound SSC.

Here we learnt about how science and maths contribute to being an engineer. At Bloodhound they are creating the fastest car to break the land record speed which is currently 633mph.

During the morning we learnt about all the different aspects of designing and making the car. They used 'CFD' which stands for 'Computational, fluid, dynamics' to design the shape, the pressure points and the materials. We learnt how the engine combustion system worked within the car to allow it to reach that speed. After this, we were given a tour around the workshop to look at each part of the car in detail. At Bloodhound they have a huge team working on the project, some infamous engineers from formula 1 and ex-army pilots. For the main body they used titanium because it was the strongest yet the lightest metal. The cabin, where Andy the driver sits, was moulded to his body shape using a bean bag type mould.

Later on we were given a team challenge to design and create a rocket car. We collaborated using our questioning skills to come up with a streamlined design which had some drag and a fin. They helped us to create the shape using the hot wire cutter and glue guns.

Finally, it was time to race! Each car had a programmed micro-bit in it to allow us to measure the speed including the use of a speed gun. We couldn't believe how fast they were! Our winning car reached a speed of 45mph! It was amazing to see something we made in action.

Yesterday a Viking man scared us by raiding our classroom and everyone screamed! He was wearing chainmail armour, a pocket for his sword and his knife – I thought he was going to kill us!

During the day, we learnt more about Vikings. He told stories about famous Vikings and their battles. One of the stories involved weapons, like a leg-biter and an axe. We were allowed to have a look at the weapons and try on the armour! The chainmail armour was very heavy however I (Mohamed Isse) managed to hold it! Throughout the day we joined in the stories acting in role wearing costumes. The men wore mainly blue tunics with belts and girls wore a range of coloured tunics. I had to act out a wolf to protect the King, Odin, wearing a fur coat. Later on Hogarth taught us how to light a fire outside. Can you guess what makes a fire? Well.... you need flint, steel and charcloth to create sparks! Once it is smouldering you can light the sawdust/wood chippings! Hogarth was very quick I was surprised! It was a great day!

Year 5 Owl have been propagating plants in their science lessons this week.

This week, we have been propagating plants in science. Propagation is when you take a piece of parent plant and try and grow it into a new plant. We have taken three different cuttings of the parent plant: part of the root, part of the stem and part of the leaf.
