We have continued to learn about Space and have been thinking about the moon.

Neil Armstrong was the first person to walk on the moon. (Chloe)
Neil’s first words on the moon were, ‘one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.’ (Thomas)
When Neil was a little boy his dad took him to see the aeroplanes. (Layla)
He had a dream that he was flying. He kept going higher and higher. He dreamt he was able to hold his breath. (Millie)
He worked and worked so he could get lots of money so he could learn to fly. (Phoebe)
Before he became an astronaut he was a pilot in the Navy. (Owen)
He died when he was 82. (Flynn)
Buzz Aldrin was the first person to wee on the moon. (Albie)

Also this week we watched Tim Peake on the International Space Station and saw how he trained to be an astronaut.

We looked at how rockets take off into space and carried out our own investigation using balloons, straws and pieces of string.

Lyla predicted that the long balloon would travel the furthest.

We had some fun trying to colour in a badge like the one Tim Peake wears under the classroom tables to see how difficult things can be in Space.
