YR 5 National Space Centre Visit - Tuesday 21st May - 9.00am to 4.00pm

On 21st May 2019, Year 5 will be blasting their way off to the National Space Centre in Leicester.  The children will see an amazing 360 degree Planetarium Show.  Then, they will take part in ‘The Great Rocket Challenge’!  Working to a budget, students must work together to design, construct and launch their rocket to 'land' on the Moon. Their craft must be designed based on strict criteria and materials purchased on a budget. Working in teams of 3 to 6, they compete to see who can build the best, and most successful, rocket which goes to the Moon.  Which team will win the race?
