Year 5 Fly To The Line Competition

fly to the line 1

This was the first time that we had run this competition at Pinewood so excitement levels were high!

The aim: to build a glider out of an A3 foam sheet and see how far it travelled when launched. The children had to use their knowledge and understanding of forces to think of the best shape for their gliders.

The venue: the Pinewood Sports Hall, in order to limit any weather variations.

The competition: nail biting!

Joint winners: Fortnite Airlines and The Victorious Age, who will be heading to the Regional Finals on 13th February at RAF Benson, Wallingford, where they will be building another glider and competing against other Year 5 and 6 children from schools across Oxfordshire.

Well done to everyone in Year 5 and good luck to winners in the regional finals!
