Year 5 went to see a show called Mission to Space at the Science Museum this week and we had a brilliant time learning about space exploration. We learned about how our ideas about space have changed over time and we got to experience live demonstrations, as well as a rocket launch! Some of us even got to participate in the demonstrations on the stage.

After the show, we explored the ‘Exploring Space’ gallery, which included actual spacecraft that has journeyed to and from space. We got to see inside Tim Peake’s ‘Soyuz’ spacecraft in which he travelled to the International Space Station. We also saw rockets, rovers, landers and satellites in this amazing exhibition.

Using the activity trail worksheet, we searched for the following items and found out a bit more about them: the USS Enterprise Model, a Yuri Gagarin bust, the Hubble Space Telescope model, a life compartment model, a space nappy, a bio belt, a space shuttle model, moon rock and a coke can.

After we had lunch, it was time to head back to school and reflect on all the fascinating things we learned about space travel today. Space travel looks like an amazing experience and a lot of fun but it definitely doesn’t look easy!
