Year 5 national Space Centre Visit
Find out about Year 5 National Space Centre experience
On Tuesday 11th September, Year 5 went to the National Space Centre in Leicester to learn all about space. We began the day by looking around some of the amazing exhibitions. The first one we explored was the iconic Rocket Tower, which is the home to Blue Streak and Thor Able rockets, as well as containing real moon rock. After all that excitement, we went to look around The Planets, where the children walked through the different planets, stopping off at Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. At the end of the day, we went into the Planetarium where we watched a short film about Astronauts and the dangers of space. The children could not believe their eyes when the short film was projected all around them. Year 5 had a fantastic day and really enjoyed their experience.
