National Space CentreCarlton Road
On the 21st of November, Year 5 went on a trip to the National Space Centre in Leicester. While we were there, we had the opportunity to learn all about the planets and gravity. We even climbed up a 42 metre high space rocket and got the chance to feel what it was like to wear an astronaut’s space suit!
We took part in an exciting ‘tour of the night sky’ workshop, and learnt all about the names of the constellations that we can see at night time.
We will be using lots of the knowledge that we gained to help us with our science topic of space, and during our writing in literacy lessons.
