Pupils needing extra support: Might prefer to use a drawing program, such as ‘Sketchpad’; however, it’s good to try and get each item in the list written out as this builds the necessary skills for creating tables and spreadsheets.
Pupils working at greater depth: Could be encouraged to use a spreadsheet (e.g. Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets). Could use the internet to research the variety of methods to make the rockets move (e.g. using balloons, water pressure, blowing through a straw).
