Sent into Space

Last half-term, the school took part in ‘Classtronauts’ where an object is sent, videoed and tracked on its journey into the stratosphere. The y2 children built the astronaut and the y6 children are currently examining the data received. Current findings tell us that the balloon, and its contents, reached an altitude of around 32,280 m after an hour with an external temperature of -38 before landing at 53.8921, -0.3681: Beverley Airfield .
