Trip to Bristol Aerospace

Year 5 and 6 went on a trip to Bristol Aerospace. Here, we explored the museum, saw planes from the past 100 years and explored inside the famous Concorde aeroplane. We took part in a 'Blast Off Rockets' workshop where we learned about the history of aerospace and made our own rockets.

A Visit from Jack Rutter

 

We had a visit from Jack Rutter, the captain of the GB Cerebral Palsy Football Team. He told us his inspirational story and talked about his experiences as a professional footballer and playing at the Paralympic Games. He then did a workshop with us where we practised warm up activities, just like the ones he does! Finally, we played games of football and handball.
