Year 5 Go on an ‘Out of the World’ Trip

03 May 2016

Year 5 children have already launched into their Themed Learning topic about space.

With astronaut training already completed, the children set off on their own voyage of discovery to the Shanghai museum of Science and Technology last week. Year 5 children from BISS Puxi were not alone on their visit as the 4000 other students from other schools provided additional company.

The whole day was a great success, with children making their own video presentation during the visit. Rockets, satellites and astronauts were the focus for the children's research and the museum provided plenty of material to support their work. For many on the trip, including the adults, the space theatre was the highlight of the day. The 180 degree screen displayed a 30 minute movie entitled Cosmic Collisions. Visually engaging as well as being extremely informative the experience was literally, out of this world.

The visit concluded in the World of Robots section of the museum. Children will consider the debate of Humans v Robots in their Literacy lessons.

The museum, like space, has a great deal to explore and we only covered two of its many sections. If you have never been to the museum, Year 5 can whole heartedly recommend the trip as a great family day out.
