World Space Week

We have celebrated World Space Week by looking at the technology used in space and careers in this area of science.  This links well with our geography topic on ‘Earning a Living’.  We watched a webcast from Tech We Can

Then the class designed a space scene – take a look at Our Space art work

We have enjoyed reading ‘Look Up’ by Nathan Byron- Waterstones Children’s Book of the Year.  It is the story of a girl called Rocket who dreams of becoming an astronaut like her inspiration, Mae Jemison
