Trip to the Moon

In Year 1 we’ve started the New Year with a trip to the Moon! On our first day back we got dressed in special space suits and took a space shuttle to the Moon. Once we were there we explored the surface and collected moon rocks to take back to Earth to examine. We then spent the rest of the day designing and constructing our own space rockets based on the Apollo 11 rocket. In English we have been using non-fiction books to research facts about the Moon, the Sun and Earth. Next week we will be using the facts to write our own fact files and will be finding out about the first Moon Landing. Our learning really is ‘Out of this World!’.
