5, 4, 3, 2, 1….Blast Off!

We have started our brand new mini mission ‘Where Once We Stood’ which is all about Space! Our first task was to show our current knowledge and understanding of the solar system using sweets! We had marshmallow suns, skittle planets and popcorn moons!

We then listened to the actual footage from the moon landing whilst tucked under our desks in the dark to mimic the landing module. After, we began reading our new text ‘Where Once We Stood’ which tells the stories of the Apollo astronauts who walked on the moon. This is our vehicle text for the next few weeks.

Lots of the children are even doing their own research at home and bringing in Space books to share in class! It’s lovely to see their enthusiasm.
