Swallows Visit the National Space Centre

Swallows Class visited the National Space Centre in Leicester. They eagerly explored the entire building, getting the glass lift up the 42m  rocket tower. There was a 1960s living-room and a huge timeline which helped to write our newspaper reports about the moon landings – there was even a tiny piece of the Moon brought back from the 1972 expedition. As always, the various sections on the planets and a hydron-collider simulator were very popular, as was the reactions tester to see if they had the skills to become an astronaut. Our trip to Britain’s largest planetarium was incredible, as the entire dome came alive to following the USA’s mission to put man on the Moon. A brilliant day out enjoyed by all!
