    Science Week

    The year fives have had a fantastic start to their new science topic on space! During science week, the children took part in a variety of exciting activities including making rockets and attempting to launch them, making moon spinners as well as participating in workshops with other classes. The highlights of the week were the planetarium, where the children experienced what it would be like to travel through Saturn's rings as well as watching the giant balloon impressively launch into space taking a picture of the children with it! The children have learnt so much this week and cannot wait to learn more about their topic!
