Year 5/6 trip to Jodrell Bank! 

On Monday , year 5/6 went to Jodrell Bank. Here are some of Base 4’s comments about the trip : 

Theo Hall : ‘ I enjoyed the Whispering Dishes because it was interesting how they worked and it was funny as you could talk from each end and hear everything that was being said!’ 

Ben Marshall : ‘ The Lovell telescope was bigger than I thought it would be – it was enormous ! ‘ 

Charlotte Knight : ‘ I really enjoyed seeing the stars and constellations in the inflatable planetarium. It was interesting to see the night sky for that evening!’ 

Jay Grainger : ‘ I really enjoyed the clockwork model of the planets on the ceiling – it was really interesting and visual about how the planets moved.’ 

Annabelle Aston : ‘ I really enjoyed the solar system science and doing all the experiments – I learnt so much !’ 

Here are some photos of the experiments Base 4 did in one of the workshops based on the solar system
