Year 5 and 6 Visit the Science Museum

Wow! What a wonderful day we’ve had at the Science Museum in London. Monarchs and Admirals loved the hands-on opportunities to investigate in the Wonderlab: we tested friction by speeding down slides made of different materials, saw sound waves in action as they vibrated through water, investigated light and shadows, built electrical circuits and much, much more!


After lunch, we explored the Space Gallery where we saw a projection of different planets, rockets and satellites, an astronaut’s space suit, the Apollo II capsule and even a piece of moon rock! We have been impressed by the behaviour and love how curious and excited they’ve been by science!
