Just a quick update!

Tawab is hero of the week for her brilliant attitude to learning and positivity in all that we do in our room.

Sarrinah, Ayan and Hussain have had their spaceman circuits put forward on the shortlist for the best training like an astronaut program. Over the next few weeks, we will find out who has been selected as the winner and which spaceman circuit will be tested out for real.

We have an incredibly busy week coming up again!

Our trip to the Daresbury Science labs is taking place on Tuesday. Please remember to bring your packed lunch (if you need one) in disposable packaging. You must wear your uniform. If you haven’t returned your permission slip, bring this in tomorrow please.

No booster groups are taking place this week as Miss Furr and I are both out on Thursday afternoon and I am very excited to be teaching PE this Friday.

Remember that your homework this week is to design a circuit training program for an astronaut. Prizes for the best training program!

I am already thinking carefully about the Spirit of the Astronaut for our hero of the week this week. Who do you think it should be?

Dear Astronauts and Space Experts,

We are writing to ask you some questions. We need help to write a balanced argument for and against space travel and exploration.

Leave a comment below if you can help, help us with our space project. Do you think that space travel can help us? Why, or why not?

Kind regards,
