How To Catch A Star With Room 8

‘How To Catch A Star’ by Oliver Jeffers

Once there was a boy, and that boy loved stars very much. So much that he decided to catch one of his very own. But how? It is enough to make a boy want to give up! Yet sometimes we discover things aren’t where, or what, we expect them to be.

The pupils in Room 8 decided the boy is a superhero, followed him through the story and admired his persistence in making his dream a reality. We learned from him being inventive as him in his attempts to catch a star, waiting from sunrise to sunset for a star to appear. We all also appreciated his patience and determination.

We went further and experimented how to power a spaceship with just a drop of hand wash liquid.

So, during Science, we cut a rocket shape out of a carton with a little space for the ‘engine’. When we added a drop of soap in the hole, it pushed the water out, backwards. The water moved out the back of the rocket and pushed it forward.

Fun, fun, fun!
