Rocket into the Future

Groupwork for Key Stage 2

 Group of primary school-aged children carrying books with symbols for different subjects above their heads, for example a test tube for science.


Rocket into the Future is a series of interactive galactic-themed workshops which encourage KS2 (Years 4 to 6) students to think about their future.

It's designed to support schools in ensuring their students are prepared for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life, and help them make links between different subjects and the world of work.

Feedback about Rocket into the Future

"Without exception, classes across all year groups have reported very positive feedback, from both pupils and teachers. Students thoroughly enjoyed the activities organised for them. An ideal experience for the children; thank you for the planning and preparation of this event.”

Assistant Head Teacher, Royston

"I have gained a better understanding of how school subjects relate to jobs in the world of work. I didn’t know that English and Maths were so very important”.
