As part of their Science topic Year 5 visited Jodrell Bank in Macclesfield. The children took part in workshops, experienced hands on practical exhibitions; an even observed the movements and recordings of the infamous Lovell Telescope.
Mr Booth and Mrs Johal 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)
