On Tuesday Year 5 were visited by 'Neil Armstrong' who talked about his experiences and thoughts when he, along with Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins travelled to the Moon. The children had an insight into what it was like to walk on the Moon and were shown photos and videos of the trip. They built their own rockets and in the afternoon they had a rocket launch demonstration before they were able to launch their own rockets into the sky. What an exciting day!
North America Day - Friday, 24th November
The children took part in various activities including making 'turkey' rice crispy cakes and clay models of iconic landmarks. There were also Presidential speeches written and performed by the children and line dancing. Yee Ha! Well done to everyone.
