On Monday 27th November, Year 3 visited the Science Museum. We had a great day looking at all of the interactive space exhibits, learning about life in space and how we can look after our planet. We watched an amazing 3D movie about how astronauts live on the space station and we saw some jaw dropping views from space. We finished the day off by meeting Yuri Gagarin, the first man in space.
