Space Walking

This week in their Talk for Reading lessons, Year One heard the story of the 'Man on the Moon (A Day in the Life of Bob)' by Simon Bartram. They loved hearing about Bob's job as an astronaut and spotted all the cheeky aliens hiding in the story. There were lots of them and they were very sneaky! The children used a Virtual Reality (VR) headset to explore the International Space Station and listened to astronaut, Tim Peake, tell them about how it works. They also used a virtual reality tablet to go on a space walk outside the shuttle. They saw the stars, the sun and Earth below their feet! It made the class chuckle when they let go on the Space Shuttle and floated around in space but some children got a little scared when they got too near the sun! Aaron was so inspired by our story that he built his own space rocket!
