Year 4’s new summer term project turned out to be space. The main question is ,what technology is used to find out about space? We started off by paying a surprise visit to the National Space Centre in Leicester to find out about life in space.
We went to the Sir Patrick Moore Planetarium to watch a show about life in space and how dangerous space is without the proper training and tools.
Next we went upstairs and learnt about launching rockets into space and men who have walked on the moon. There were four levels and we climbed 148 stairs to reach the highest level and got a view of the rocket tower.
We ended the day by reading a book about aliens in space.
Our next lesson was on researching three of the planets. Mars, Saturn and Jupiter. You would rotate through the three year 4 classes and every day you would learn about a different planet and record it in different ways.
