National Space Centre
In January, the entire Year 4 base went on a trip to the National Space Centre in Leicester as part of our work on Space. Upon arrival, we explored the museum area which had a wide range of interactive exhibits, mini-experiments, models of planets and space-crafts, and saw the amazing Soyuz capsule. We also watched a short film in the Sir Patrick Moore Planetarium called ‘Astronaut’, which went into detail about what happens to the human body in space. We finished our trip by going on the simulator ride, which took us on a 3D adventure to Europa – one of Jupiter’s moons – to try and discover extraterrestrial life!
