Our Space Centre sleepover 9th and 10th June

June 11th, 2017 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Year 5 were extremely lucky to have the chance to not only visit the space centre, but sleep there too. We made the journey to Leicester after school on Friday and returned on Saturday morning.

Here are some of the things we did,

firstly, we created rockets and tested them out…

















Next we spend time in the planetarium, after this we had time to explore the centre.

















Lastly, we watched some experiments.


In the morning, very tired from such an exciting evening, we had breakfast all together then watched a film in the planetarium before returning to the coach to come home.









What an exciting couple of days. What was your favourite part?

Our mad science session. 28/4/17

April 28th, 2017 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Today Charlie the scientist came into Year 5 to teach us about space.

He talked with us about different facts about Space, all children had a go at answering different questions.









We then spent time creating our own comet, we placed the moulds in water and left the comet to set.


























While we waited, we performed a space challenge. Using large gloves we had to build with Lego, at first we thought this would be ok, but then we realised ….

































After our tricky challenge, it was time to see how our comets had turned out. We opened the mould, got out the comet and rolled it around our hands.














What what was your most favourite part of the session? What facts can you remember?
