Year 6 Visit the Science Museum

On Tuesday morning, as the rain kindly paused, our excited Year 6 scientists headed to Hornchurch station. With word searches in hand, the 23 stops on the train towards the Science Museum seemed to fly by! On arrival, our first destination was the Launchpad - a collection of interactive experiments designed to fascinate and delight children. Launching rockets, creating waves and producing power through peddling were just a few of the fun activities on offer.

The day ended with a blast at the ‘Flash, Bang, Wallop’ explosions show. The children learnt that fuel, heat and oxygen are all required for an explosion to take place but were warned “Don’t try this at home!”.
