What a way to finish off our topic about explorers! The children were so inspired after watching the launch! Afterwards we used this topic to write about what equipment an astronaut needs and what an astronaut might want to take to space. We discussed the differences between ‘want’ and ‘need’. The children produced some lovely and well thought out writing using conjunctions to explain their ideas.

Neil Armstrong the Explorer02-12-2015 | 14:14:05 | 6 Comments

This afternoon we have been learning about what equipment an explorer would need if they were travelling to the moon.

We learned about Neil Armstrong and the Apollo 11 Mission to the Moon.

We will be writing a diary entry as though we were on board the rocket.

To help us understand what it was like we watched a video about the mission.

The children were very excited to see the rocket blast off!

If you would like to watch the video at home you can access it from this link.
