Space Week 2022

St Catherine’s have had a spectacular Space Week this year with a wide range of activities taking place, from creating your own planet to rebuilding the James Webb Telescope with origami skills!  We have also had a wide range of competition entries, showing off your space knowledge!

This week has allowed us to see the creativity pupils bring to STEM, particularly when applying their passion and curiosity to space.

Please see the statements from the children below as well as the photographs of our wonderful week!
