Q5 Pupils Visit The National Space Centre
On Friday 13th, Q5MH enjoyed a very successful trip to the National Space Centre in Leicester. Arriving well before the other schools, we were able to enjoy the exhibits downstairs and gather information about all the planets, the international space station and space travel then and now.
Then, we went into the Planetarium and had a lovely tour of the night sky, hearing stories about some of the constellations.
Before lunch, we climbed the many steps to the top of the rocket tower and had photos inside a space-man suit, as well as learning about what life was like for people living in the 1960s when the first landing on the moon took place.
After lunch we participated in an interactive workshop about life in space and learned how astronauts prepare to go to space, what astronauts wear when they go space-walking, what they eat and how dangerous life in space can be.
It was a great trip and we all enjoyed ourselves and learned lots of new things.
