There was great excitement as our Reception Class boarded the minibus ready for their adventure to Spaceport.
On arrival, the girls had the opportunity to become virtual explorers in a 360 degree Space Dome show. They learnt how an astronaut prepares and trains for his journeys and they talked about what it must be like without gravity!
They also took part in a rocket workshop, where they had a competition to see how high they could shoot a rocket into the air.
There were lots of interactive games to learn about the science of lights and magnets but the highlight of the day was the simulator ride - the girls all boarded a capsule for a roller coaster ride through our solar system!
