Children at Barrow Primary School enjoyed a Space Day this week, learning about the science behind rockets and the origins of craters.

The activities, organised and presented by Nadine Payne and Colin Hanfrey from County Upper School, in Bury St Edmunds, gave Years Three and Four pupils the opportunity to try out their scientific investigation skills.

Year Three teacher and science coordinator David Barrett said: “The children really loved it and lots of them were asking when we were going to do more.

“We had two sessions, one where they were looking at rockets and one where they were looking at craters.

“We are already looking into doing more with rockets they made in the future. The event was to really try and inspire them into learning about science.”

The event was organised by the Bury All-Through academy trust, which is funded by the Rolls Royce Science Prize grant, received in recognition of getting through to the 2014/15 final.
