The very first Space Camp was a resounding success! 5SG all had an absolutely amazing night stargazing and learning about space.

Children arrived back at school, after going home at the end of the school day, and upacked their things into their own Space tents.

They were then put into two groups, Team Peake and Team Armstrong.

One team began the night with a Science investigation. Does the surface of a planet affect the size of the crater produced?

While the other team created their own nebulae pictures. The two teams then swapped over activities.

We then got ready to go outside with Astronomer Greg Brown from the Warwick University Outreach Team for some star gazing. Greg talked to everyone about the different stars in the sky and we learnt all about the solar system. The children were able to look through school’s very own telescope at the night sky as well as using a specail app on our iPads.

We warmed up back inside with some hot chocolate and settled down to watch Space Chimps.

The children slept well after the film and enjoyed a filling breakfast in the morning.
