As part of their Science topic, Year 5 visited Jodrell Bank in Macclesfield. The children took part in workshops; experienced hands-on, practical exhibitions; and even observed the movements and recordings of the famous Lovell Telescope.
Mr Booth and Miss Bardsley were very impressed with the children’s fact finding and super teamwork, especially during the Mars Rover Workshop.
My day at Jodrell Bank was very fun. We had an interesting workshop where we worked in groups to carry out the ‘Mars Rover Challenge’. We had to create a protective device to make sure an egg did not crack when it was dropped from a height. Our second workshop involved looking at Tim Peake’s mission into Space. Towards the end of the day we had enough time to visit the playground and gift shop, which was very exciting! (Year 5 pupil)
