Job Application for…. NASA

June 27th, 2017 · No Comments · Uncategorized

We had a bit of a surprise today in Literacy. We opened our Literacy books  to see individual letters from… NASA!
To our amazement NASA have offered year 5 positions to join their crew on their next mission to Mars! We are super excited and have been working on writing a persuasive cover letter for our applications! 

Come and take a look at our letters. We are really proud of our work 🙂 

Have you had anything exciting happen to you this week?

In year 5 this year we have had some amazing trips! One being our sleepover at the National Space Centre! It was so amazing and we got to learn so much information about the solar system and the universe! We were even able to watch some amazing experiments that taught us about action and reaction. 
 We got to create our our rockets and launch them at the moon, we got to dress us and understand the weather. We were about to look at different stars in the universe and see where they were in a dark room that lit up as the universe. We even got to walk around the museums and see what life is like on an actual rocket. 

Can you comment and explain your favourite part of the trip?

Can you comment and explain what action and reaction is?
