Our Key Stage 2 'Earth and Space' and 'Forces' Spaceman workshop

A more factual but still still fun workshop with the spaceman, rocket launches
and even a moon rover drive!

Key Stage 2 summary:

This Key Stage Two science workshop is an inspiring journey through the history of space travel for either any KS2 year group as a one-off experience or for the year 5 Earth and Space and Forces Science topics. This includes a detailed 'space race' HD presentation; the handling of actual space flown items; controlling a mini moon rover and exciting paper rocket making and launching,

Based around the space race of the 60s and 70s but with links to modern space exploration as well, this unique Key Stage 2 science workshop can be delivered to either single or multiple classes over the course of a single day or several days as per the following examples.

A spaceman visit for a year 5 pupil

One day, single class version summary:
2 OR MORE CLASSES? (ie up to 4) then it is the spaceman presentation to start altogether followed by normally the rocket making session per class

  • SPACE RACE PRESENTATION: Mr B enters your hall or classroom in the spacesuit to wow pupils with an explanation of the science behind it as well as the 1960s ‘space race’ in an interactive HD video presentation, including genuine flown space artefacts and astronaut-signed items for the pupils to handle. 

  • MOON ROVER: This is then followed after breaktime by pupils having a turn at piloting our remote control moon rover across a vast moon textured surface, where they learn in pairs exactly how difficult it is to control such an awkward vehicle! 

  • ROCKET MAKING: (perfect for the year 5 forces topic!) After lunchtime the fun continues with some rocket making related to your space ‘forces’ topic, when pupils learn all about the forces of gravity, thrust and drag by making a paper rocket and launching it in comparison with their friends.
