As part of their Project Curriculum, Year 5 have been learning about space.
Mrs Hannick arranged a trip to the Science Museum to discover more about Life in SPACE !!!
First on the agenda was a visit to the exhibition called 'Cosmonauts, Birth of the Space Age.' It features many of the gadgets and equipment that people need to live and work in space - spacesuits, a space-shower, a space-toilet, medical instruments and survival kits - along with some of the actual capsules that have brought Cosmonauts back to Earth, and a lunar landing craft.
The exhibition also has lots of firsts – the first dog in space; the first man, the first woman and the first civilian in space; and the first spacewalk.
Well if that wasn't enough they were off to the theatre room to feel the impact of a Saturn V rocket launch. The Discovery Motion Theatre is the ultimate multi-sensory experience allowing you to hear and feel what it was like to be part of the ground breaking Apollo mission.
To get a real understanding of what it would be like to walk in space, Year 5 listened to an actress portraying Svetlana Savitskaya, the first woman to perform a space walk. After listening to her experience of space life they had the opportunity to put their questions to her.
As well as being educational the day was fun and an eye opener to life in space.
Year 5 have been looking at poems for poetryweek. They have composed an assortment of Aurora Borealis poems and performed them in class.
