Space Exploration at Jodrell Bank

The whole of Year 5 visited Jodrell Bank in April to consolidate the work they have been doing on Space.

Along with learning about the Lovell telescope, the children attended workshops on being an astronaut, learning about Tim Peake and his mission to the International Space Station in 2016. They learnt about some of the key skills needed, not only to be an astronaut, but a scientist or engineer working in the space industry. In the second workshop the children completed a series of experiments which explored a variety of science concepts, each linked to the Solar System. They also experimented and found facts in the two exhibition areas.
