Year 6 - Pork Pie Hats
To Infintity & Beyond!
On Monday 23rd September, Year 5 & 6 all went on a school trip to the National Space Centre. As we are currently studying space in our Topic lessons, we were all very excited to explore the NSS! One of our favourite parts of the day was experiencing the Weather Pod. This was a small room which provided you with a script to read whilst it filmed. It then used a green screen to transport you into a weather report. We all enjoyed watching ourselves have a go at presenting the weather (some were better than others!)
We also climbed up to the stop of the rocket tower. We climbed a staggering 144 steps to get to the very top, although some of us opted for the lift instead! We were able to explore different space environments and even looked at some real moon rock.
After lunch, we had an amazing adventure as we simulated into space in the mesmerising planetarium. We learnt some mind-blowing facts about outer space and were able to view some Ancient Greek constellations.
Everyone agreed that the Space Centre was a brilliant school trip!
Wednesday October 2nd was 'Crazy Hair Day'. We all did our best to join in with the fun!
