Dear Mr Peake


I’m a student at Plymouth grove primary school in year 5. In science and pe I have been learning about what it is like to walk in zero gravity . My favourite planet is Saturn

In our class we have been learning about planets . We know that there are gas and rock planets and mixed . My favourite   planet is Saturn because of its ring did you know that Saturn’s ring is made out of rocks and ice . what is your favrout planet and why.

 we have been learning about astronomer’s and astronauts and their training . Like they have to go under water becase it simulates space and that you have to know how to drive a rocket .

Do you have any favourite planets and why do you like them?  thanks for taking the time into reading this.

I’m writing to you to learn about how people move on the moon.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               We learnt about lots of planet in our solar sistem. And we learnt about astronaut moving wither gravity.

My name is Juvariah i am a student from Plymouth Grove Primary school , i am in year 5.At school we have been looking at space.In P.E  we have been looking  at how astronaurt move and train.Science is my favorate subject.

At school we are going to a trip to sent things at space.Its is called Datesbury  science Labs.I  think you might have been there. We  had 4 visiters in are school for them to teach us more about space.

In year 5 we have beenn waching vidios about  how astonaurts train .It is a clear that astonaurts go to space in a rocket.Which is your favoret planet ? because mkine is Mars.Mars is a red planet which is freezing cold.A fact about mars is that is someone whants to live in Mars they whould never come back.

When  are you going to space?When do youn train?what time do you train ?how do you  have break fast in space?How do you keep food from flouting from space?

thanks for reading my letter from Juvariah

To Mr Peake,

My name is Ayan and I am a student in year 5 at Pymouth grove primary school in Manchester. I really like space in fact we are doing space in PE.My favourite planet is Jupiter .I  like  Jupiter because it is orange and it is 300 times heavier than the Earth.I am writing to you because I want to know what a real life astronaut does.

Like I  said Jupiter is my favourite planet.Jupiter  is named after the king of the Roman god’s.A day in Jupiter is less than 10 hours long-the shortest day in the solar system.Jupiter has 16 moons “WOW” that’s a lot.

I have learned how astronaut train. They train under water to   see and feel how it is going to feel in space.We have watched  lots of videos  about  how astronaut train.We even have PE  to train and experience to get ready to go to space.  They  really need to be ready to go to space .

How do they eat in space?Does it just float and you try to eat it?How can they drink in space?They need to drink water to live.How many things  do you need to know to go to space?

Thank you Mr Peake for reading this and I hope you have a great day.

Next week we are going to set this experiment up in our classroom.

Here is a time lapse video of salt crystals growing.


Try it at home!! Mix warm water and salt together. Leave the salty water in a bowl to evaporate. Magic!!
