  • Henham & Ugley Update

    Henham & Ugley Primary & Nursery School

    Superb day today -50 children involved in building and launching rockets plus fantastic real life science. An unexpected opportunity to visit a travelling planetarium was also thoroughly enjoyed! The children (and adults!) learned so much throughout the project, but this was a really special opportunity to apply lots of that knowledge and understanding in a practical way supported by passionate scientists!

  • Mission X St Mary's Primary School

    We are a small school in a village called Stansted, in Essex. In our class there are 26 students and two teachers.

    Today we have been looking at some of the old footage clips about the Apollo missions, which were very interesting. The children have just started drawing the planets in the solar system.

    Our class enjoyed all the Mission X activities that were held at the local High School, especially the 'Strong Bones' activity and looking at the ingredients that are in certain foods.

    Next week we will be holding a Mission X week, which the children are looking forward to.
