Year five Magna trip
Magna is a science centre set in the former Templeborough steelworks. During the morning we were able to explore hands-on exhibits on Air, Earth, Fire and Water in four themed zones. We also watched a fantastic show recreating the history and working of one of the furnaces that once melted the steel.
After lunch we had a space workshop where we leant about space and rockets.
Before the coach picked us up there was just enough time to have some fun in the outside adventure zone.
International Space Station
and Space Shuttle
Using the internet and books we carried out research on either the International Space Station (ISS) or the Space Shuttle. We put all the facts we found out in to our jotters so that we could transfer the information to a poster. Next, in pairs, we designed a poster to present the facts we found. Then we designed our own Space Shuttle or ISS and labeled what we were going to use to make it. We brought things in from home to make our models. We had lots of fun making our models. We needed lots of tape.
