5 Blue visit the Space centre! ๐Ÿš€

This half term, in Science we have been learning all about Space. As part of our learning, we have been very lucky to visit The National Space Centre! We had an โ€˜out of this worldโ€™ experience exploring the many exhibits and learning lots of new information that we could also link to our 1960โ€™s unit in History!

We enjoyed a rocket science show where we watched lots of exciting experiments, explored the space centre exhibitions and finished off with an amazing planetarium show.

Rocket science

What different science did Isaac Newton focus on? What are the components of the fire triangle? What is left after combustion?
What do we call a place where a rocket is launched from? What is the difference between vertical and horizontal launches?


How do astronauts train for space missions?
What are the physical effects on an astronautโ€™s body when they are in space?
How much exercise must they do daily? Why?


  1. Rocket science:
    The science that Isaac Newton focused on was physics. The components of the fire triangle are heat, oxygen and fuel. A launch pad is where you launch rockets. The differences between horizontal and vertical launches are that horizontal launches use less fuel, and it rolls off a runway and gradually lifts into the air. However, a vertical launch uses a lot more fuel because it shoots up vertically.

    Some ways that astronauts train are doing tasks under water, and they can sit in a mechanical arm that spins them around extremely fast in order to prepare for the launch into space and zero gravity in space. The physical effects on an astronaut’s body in space are weight loss, becoming taller and bone loss. Astronauts must exercise 2.5 hours a day so that they can mitigate zero gravity on their bones and muscles.

  2. My favourite part was the planetarium because it was very cool and i loved how it was in real life. I also enjoyed the experiments with the lady.

  3. I enjoy everthing and I really enjoyed the cool parts like flying watching the movie about space.I wish we can actually go to space but at least we had fun in space centre๐Ÿง‘โ€๐Ÿš€

  5. I enjoyed the planetarium because it was fun to watch and it have lots of information it also had a realistic touch to it I liked the movement as it was very cool.
