Moon Zoom!

CRASH! What’s that in the playground?

Let’s go outside and take a look.


Stand back everyone – it looks like a UFO has crash-landed! Find out who might have landed by exploring the craft and investigating scattered scientific specimens.


During this topic, our Year 1 superstars will explore the universe of space travel, astronauts and all things rocket fuelled! We will learn about the history of space travel, study images from NASA and even build our own rocket ships. Children will have plenty of opportunities to explore space themed poems, stories and non-fiction texts, all of which will expand and deepen their knowledge of the intergalactic!


Are you ready for take off Year 1? Hold tight. 5 4 3 2 1… LIFT OFF!

On Friday, an alien space ship crash-landed into our school grounds!

The whole school heard a huge, loud noise and Year 1 rushed outside to investigate! 

We found the remains of an alien's spaceship, and discussed what we could see. 

Later that day, the lovely people from Jodrell bank came to clear up the remains, and check the area for any stray aliens.

Luckily, everything seems to be back to normal, but we cant wait to learn more about space on our Moon Zoom adventure!
