10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1...BLAST OFF!

Our Year 5 pupils had a great day out on Thursday 2nd March when they visited the National Space Centre in Leicester as part of their 'Out of this world' theme. It was a very early start, with everyone departing school at 8am, but this did not dampen spirits and a coach full of lively children set off! Whilst at the Space Centre the children had plenty of time to investigate the wide variety of exhibitions about space, where they learned how to be an astronaut and gained a wealth of knowledge about planets, stars and much more besides. One of the highlights of the day was the workshop where groups of children competed against each other to build the best rocket on a budget. The children then launched their rockets using air pressure to see who could win the most points by aiming at a target. It was an action-packed day but, when questioned on the way home about their favourite part, it was definitely the 4D planetarium experience that was the overwhelming favourite! A great day was had by all who attended and lots of great ideas were collected for their upcoming space projects. Photos of their visit can be found on pages 3 and 4 of Newsletter 7 (wc 13th March)
