Achievement for all

Mercury successfully completed the space survival trip!

Year 6 had a fantastic trip to the Centre for Life today, exploring the space zone and taking part in the space survival workshop. We all learned lots about space and the importance of ice to help protect our planet. We watched a scientist perform different experiments (some which appeared very dangerous) and we also took part in replacing a satellite using robots, just like they would at the International Space Station. Poor Miss Bainbridge got chosen (by the majority of the class) to be the volunteer in an experiment, oh no 🤦‍♀️😂 so, on that note... double literacy for Mercury tomorrow!
