Space 4 Schools

Today, Key Stage 2 have enjoyed working with Steve from Space 4 Schools, who has taught us all about launching rockets. His aim is to make space tourism (holidays in space) a reality!

Years 3-6 had an assembly, where we learned all about the first animals and people in space, and how rockets are launched.

In the afternoon, all of Key Stage 2 gathered to watch a one metre rocket (powered by real rocket fuel) launch above our school. Watch the video below to see the launch!
