Astronauts for the Day

Reception children were very excited to see the forty-two metre high Rocket Tower as they approached the National Space Centre on Monday 28th January.

The iconic Rocket Tower at the National Space Centre is home to Blue Streak and Thor Able rockets, as well as the Gagarin Experience, Apollo Lunar Lander and real Moon Rock.

The children had an amazing time.  They had an alien hunt in the Planetarium, enjoyed a workshop on the Planets and even had the chance to meet a ‘real, live astronaut’.
