We had an amazing time. We started our day with a visit to the Planetarium, where we discovered how to find the North Star. We were able to explore the exhibits in the science center before our workshop 'Destination Earth.' During our workshop we were challenged to find the most effective material for protecting a rocket from heat as well as directing light using mirrors. Finally, we were amazed to use special glasses to refract light to see the colours of the rainbow in the light around us.
We have loved learning about space and the effects of gravity, during the first half term of this year. We have explored day and night, gravity, the space race and other aspects of our galaxy. We also sketched, painted and created collages with a space and planet theme. We explored word be Kandinksi to use as our inspiration.
In autumn 1, year 5 children were invited to create a project covering an area of space and the planets. We were astounded with the amazing quality of the projects produced.
We celebrated these through holding and assembly and sharing these with each of the year 5 classes and year 6. Some children volunteered to share their project, what they did, who helped them and how they did it.
