Gillespie School’s first ever scientific spectacular Space Camp
At Gillespie School we are hosting our first ever Space Camp. The Lab_13 committee with the help of teachers will be managing the night. The first Space Camp will be exclusive to Y6, then other classes will also get the chance to participate. The main activity for the night we hope will be stargazing if the weather is good. The other activities we will be hosting are astronaut training exercises, the science of space and the art of space. We will be sleeping over in school until the next morning. The next day we will be sharing our experience of Space Camp in our weekly sharing assembly.
The think I am looking forward to most is sleeping over in school! And the astronaut exercises because I know they need to exercise a lot to maintain their strength in space because of the gravity. When we were in Y5 we learnt about the ISS and about how astronauts need to exercise to maintain their bone strength. I want to learn new exercises as I only know a few.
Y6 responded enthusiastically when our teacher told us the news about Space Camp!
