Pupils from Orchard class also visited Gravity Fields, they were able to have a sensory experience focusing on the amazing light exhibition at the George Centre in Grantham.
As part of the Gravity fields celebrations, Ascot class were involved in an art workshop with artist Dee Sowden. Dee came into school to do artwork with them based on the scientist Rosalind Franklin. They made lanterns and were then invited to the big parade, Gravity Fields Carnival. The parade ran through Grantham Town with pupils from other schools also taking part.
