Space Centre Review by Griffin Class member Josh “We went to the National Space Centre and learnt about the planets Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Jupiter is the fourth planet from the sun and it’s the biggest. Uranus is the coldest planet. We found out about gravity. Isaac Newton was sitting under a tree and an apple fell on his head. We made our own paper machè planets using a variety of different size balls. We looked at a number of different pictures of Earth taken from the International Space Station (ISS). We chose a picture we liked of the Earth from space and made our own. We then went outside and used toilet paper to show the distance of the planets from the Sun. We made our own rockets and had a competition to see whose was the most aerodynamic.” By Josh
