Having visited Leicester Space Centre, the children in Year 5 and 6 experienced a range of space exploration learning activities.
From entering space modules, to visiting the space tower, children at Roughwood Primary School were able to immerse themselves into life as an Astronaut. We explored the smells, sights and types of meals that we would have on the mission trip to space. Take a look at ‘dinner in a tube’.
Have you ever wondered if you’d weigh the same on a different planet? We found out that you wouldn’t! We also were able to see a real fragment of moon rock, and learn about the different attire that astronauts wore for their journey to space.
Here is a taster of photos from the experiences from throughout the day. Look out for further posts.
