As we arrived at school this morning, we were greeted by an unusual sight... a giant balloon was sitting in the middle of the playground. A buzz of excitement swept across the school.
After meeting with the experts from Hi-Impact, we soon found out that the balloon was filled with Helium. Because Helium is a lighter gas than air, the balloon is always trying to go upwards. Good job it was attached to the ground by a rope!
On the bottom of the balloon was a 360 degree camera which means that the videos we have taken are in all directions! We are hoping to have some really good videos and pictures of our local area to use in our Geography lessons.
Below is a slideshow and some video footage of the balloon launch...
