One giant leap


A 90 minute children's activity session taking up the theme of the artwork 'One Small Step' by Peter Walker. It includes helping teddy to take 'One Giant Leap' with a parachute!

It's time for our young visitors to help teddy with his astronaut training - as he parachutes from high up in the cathedral. See him "falling-with-style", help him fold up his parachute and then take him for a walk across the recreation of the moon surface where men first stood way back in 1969!

The children will explore the story of that first moon landing and take part in Astronaut Training by:

making a mission badge

solving logic puzzles

making teddy a parachute

taking their teddy plus his parachute safely home with them 

This activity is linked to the exhibition of 'One Small Step' by the artist Peter Walker.
