Year 5 Trip To The National Space Centre, 11th January 2017
As part of our project this term, Class 5 Southwold Space Cadets, embarked on their mission to ‘Rendezvous with a Comet’.
In preparation for their mission, children joined many teams as such as; Communications, Medical, Data, Probe Mechanics, Medical Life Support, Navigation and Remote.
Children used a wide range of skills to analyse an unknown object heading towards earth. They also built and launched a probe into space to gather more detailed data. They were truly inspired to learn more about our solar system and never stopped asking questions.
Southwold Space Cadets worked brilliantly as a team, naming the newly identified comet ‘Southwold’.
Our cadets were truly committed to their mission and made the trip a most enjoyable day for all. Well done Class 5 – a mission to never be forgotten!
