This is almost it, the penultimate post of the year!
What a year, what a week.
From Sound poetry to the Navvies we’ve done it all.
Today we had a very internet special talk from a top scientist from the Royal Institute . During which he asked us how to get a telescope into space. Apparently my suggestion of chuck it very far was deemed unhelpful.
Luckily Year 5 were on hand to solve the question. It turns out that giant space telescopes have to be folded and packed away, Year 5 had an attempt at replicating this, with I think it is to say varying degrees of success. Our giant telescopes being only 5 inches big and made out paper and not massive and designed out of magic space materials.
But Year 5 as always were fantastic, and it was such a privilege to be part of this wonderful way of doing science.
