Reception went to Spaceport in Wallasey as a culmination of their LCC topic about Space.
The girls had an out of this world experience. They explored the Solar System and planets, learning about the big bang that created the Universe. They looked closely at real meteorites that had crashed onto Earth and took part in lots of different experiments. One experiment consisted of testing the weight of a baked beans can on different planets, in order to feel the effects of different gravities. Another experiment explored using compressed air to launch rockets. This proved great fun and all the girls were given a rocket making kit to take home.
The most popular of all the activities by far was the roller coaster ride in an exciting space shuttle simulator!
