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.

IMG_0432 We all had the opportunity to visit the 9 metre rocket, and handle the space artefacts. Years 5 and 6 also were able to make rockets with Steve.


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!

    Mrs Thompson I loved the rocket launch, it has helped to kick start Year 5’s Science topic on forces. They cannot wait to learn all about how rockets work as part of our topic. The video I have shows the rocket landing on the school roof, which was very funny.

    Thomas loved the space rocket and as his new bedroom has a space theme he now wants a model rocket in his bedroom.

    I wish my school had been using these methods of teaching in the past, learning by playing, more experiments , all that is essential to create that hunger of knowledge, children want to know more, learn more and have fun at the same time. Brilliant !!!!

    Wow! That actually looked amazing. What a great way to teach the children. They all looked so excited and motivated.
