On Tuesday, Year 5 went on an amazing trip to Jodrell Bank to support our space topic in science. The children were able to explore a number of different exhibits in the Planet and Space Pavillion where they learned about black holes, our solar system and even how Jodrell Bank was used during the Second World War.
Year 5 also spent some time in the Space Dome where they were given a talk about our solar system and looked at all of the different constellations in our solar system - they had fun trying to guess which animals the different constellations looked like! They travelled to Saturn and Mars to explore the planets and looked at how the movement of the Earth affects day and night.
Finally, the children explored the outside area and investigated the 'Whispering Telescopes' and were able to watch the giant telescope move along the train tracks.
