Year 5 Trip to the Science Museum

Year 5 visited the Science Museum to complete our learning on Earth and Space. From rockets to satellites, probes to landers, we saw a gallery full of out-of-this world objects. We explored how humans have sent spacecraft to other planets, walked on the Moon and peered into the heart of our galaxy and beyond. We saw a full-sized replica of 'Eagle' - the lander that took astronauts, Armstrong and Aldrin, to the Moon in 1969. Then discovered how we are able to live in space - to breathe, eat, drink and go to the toilet. We even got to experience a 4D film simulating the Apollo rocket launch.
