World Space Week, celebrated from 4 – 10 October each year, is the largest space event on Earth. At St George’s the children celebrated the event with a whole raft of inspiring lessons and activities designed to increase their knowledge of the solar system. The Kitchen staff even provided rocket-shaped biscuits at break time. With the aid of Virtual Reality headsets, some children were even lucky enough to become astronauts for the morning, blasting off into space, piloting their research vessels around planets and moons. Perhaps one day they will become the next generation of space scientists and astronauts and blast off into space for real – who knows!
