As we won’t be in school to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing on the 20th July, we decided to mark the occasion this week. Classes throughout the school did various activities as they learned about the amazing feat that the astronauts Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong and Michael Collins experienced.
In Year 4, our pupils had rockets travelling along different surfaces to see how their speed was affected.
Our Year 6 pupils designed and built a shock-absorbing system for a spacecraft to land on the moon. We tested our designs and then evaluated each other’s, suggesting ways of improvement.
Some of our wonderful pupils did extra work at home and brought their posters, paper mache moons and rocket designs into school. Amazing job!
