Aerospace Bristol - December 2017
‘Aerospace Bristol was a blast from the past. As if all the facts were not good enough you can even see things there that range from missiles to the vast Concorde. It was in my eyes a once in a lifetime experience.
If you have always wanted to go on a plane but you are afraid of the sky then Aerospace Bristol is the place for you! In the museum was the colossal legendary Concorde which used to get you from London to New York in the space of 2 hours and 30 minutes. Unfortunately it will never fly again because it costs too much to run.
After lunch we settled down to make some cardboard rockets. Previous classes had shot their rockets up into the air and got them stuck to the roof! We had a fantastic time and the room was filled with laughter. At the end there was a massive mess and rockets everywhere.
I would go to Aerospace Bristol any day of the week.’ By Luke
‘Whilst exploring Aerospace Bristol we learnt about space science, the history of aviation and about some amazing people who changed the way we look at aviation nowadays.
In our workshop we were challenged to make a rocket. Once we had made them it was time to take off! Everyone got a chance to shoot their rocket out the end of a plastic tube attached to a rubber balloon which you stamped on to shoot your rocket.
Later we got to go inside Concorde which was really cool and we learnt lots of interesting facts about it. We were able to see what it looked like from underneath as also we explored the hangar it was in.’ By Lotte
Rowan class have been learning about the Ancient Greeks and their battle formation called the phalanx. We designed and made Greek shields and re-enacted a battle. It was lots of fun!
