Year 3 will be learning about Neil Armstrong in history and about forces in science so to get us excited about our learning, we went on a trip to the Centre for Life in Newcastle. We learnt about Apollo 11’s moon landing in 1969 and set up our own rocket investigations to test what force and angle was needed for our rockets to reach the ‘moon.’
We explored the space exhibition and had a lovely experience in the planetarium. The highlight of our trip was going ice skating on the outdoor ice rink. We all had an amazing time, and despite a few falls (including Miss Dodds), we picked ourselves back up and kept on trying with a smile on our faces.
Thank you for your contributions towards the trip that allowed us this great experience.
