Astronauts for the day!

Last week, Year 3 and 4 visited the Centre for Life in Newcastle, and had a fun filled day exploring, investigating and experimenting. All three classes explored the curiosity and brain zone before visiting the planetarium for a truly amazing star gazing experiencing.
Each class had their turn visiting the science lab to take part in a Destination Space workshop where the children were recruited as the next generation of space explorers. Children underwent tasks that crew members would be expected to do such as operating a robotic arm, and investigating maximum absorbency garments for use on a spacewalk. The day came to a close with a visit to the Science Theatre Show to watch the ‘Secret life of gases’ demonstration.
 Plenty of sleepy children on the bus journey home!
