VC in Nightingale Primary School

This week my class took part in a Video Conference event with the National Space Centre. This project ran all week with 9 schools across Redbridge, it was organised by Mina Patel from LGFL

The event itself was a self contained e-mission, where the children had the task of designing, launching and crewing a space station. A topic that can fit into KS2 science.

The mission was a success and the children all worked hard and enjoyed themselves. There where some issues, but this was mainly with some of the content and resources provided. This was a new mission for the space centre and our feedback was collected and will be fed back to them.

The main issue I had was the need for it to be accessible to all children either though differentiated worksheets and challenges for the more able.

But its is a great event, brilliant for team work, and one that I would do again in a heart beat.
