Key Stage One pupils from St Anne’s School in Worksop launched their new topic, Blast Off!, in a spectacular way with a visit to the National Space Centre in Leicester.
The stimulating environment didn’t fail to provoke the children’s curiosity and interest and the hands-on activities made the experience even more memorable.
“I enjoyed going to the planetarium because I could watch the astronaut film,” said five year-old Amelia.
And six year-old Jack added: “My favourite part of the Space Centre was the Rocket Tower because I loved the water rockets.
“It was like they were blasting off into space.”
