Thanks to a whole host of exciting activities and lessons planned around the theme, Space Week drew together learning about Space and STEM across all areas of the curriculum with a view to inspiring and engaging pupils from Nursery to Year 6.
The action-packed week culminated in a spectacular weekend Space Day where more than 1,000 people visited the school to enjoy everything from a visit to Winchester Science Centre’s mobile planetarium to rocket t-shirt printing and Virtual Reality workshops. To cap off this successful event, Britain’s first astronaut, Helen Sharman, was also on hand to describe her own mission to the Mir Space Station to rapt audiences and answer all their burning questions about life in space.
Cranford House Headmaster, Dr James Raymond told us, “We’re thrilled that Space Week has been such a success. I believe our primary role here in school is to inspire, excite and enthuse children about their learning and this special week has done just that!”
Thank you to everyone who came along and helped to make Space Day such a success.
