  • Joyful start in another exciting week-Top24-VS-Lohnsburg

    Hurray! We will start the new week by training our body and mind.
    Virtueller Start einer Rakete vom Sportplatz ins Weltall. Kinder schreiben eine Fantasiegeschichte über ihre Erlebnisse in den unendlichen Weiten des Universums.

  • Class 8 Complete Jump To The Moon

    Class 8 thoroughly enjoyed completing all the challenges that Jump To The Moon required. Some pupils were used to skipping and moved on to the acceleration activities quickly whilst others found it a little more challenging, however, all the pupils tried their best and achieved the minimum requirements.
    For many class members, including the teachers, it was interesting to see how difficult it was, even for 'fit' pupils/staff to continuously skip on the spot. We will definitely be using skipping ropes more often in our warm-ups to improve our stamina further.

  • Class 8 Complete Crew Strength Training

    Class 8 started their astronaut training by challenging themselves with the Crew Strength Training activities. We completed these over two lessons so that we had the opportunity to improve on our results. The first session was really hard and lots of the pupils woke up with achy legs the following day!
    The second session went better though and showed how quickly muscles can be built if you exercise, stretch and rest properly.
    After completing all the specified repetitions some of the pupils wanted to see how long they could hold a squat for... Mrs Hazell had to ask them to stop after 3 minutes as she feared for their thigh muscles!
    Very impressive start to our astronaut training!

  • Die 3A-Weltraumprofis der VS Henndorf starten los!

    3A-Weltraumprofis

    10 Astronautinnen und 11 Astronauten starten mit voller Begeisterung und freuen sich auf viele spannende Missionen!

  • Training unter fast realen Weltraumbedingungen

    Meldung der Planetenflitzer VS Wolfsegg!

    Nach dem Tausch unseres Weltraumanzugs gegen den Schioverall beschlossen wir anstelle des Terrains der staubigen Mondoberfläche den Pulverschnee des Hausrucks als Trainingsgelände zu nützen.
    Um bei den großen Belastungen eines Raketenstarts nicht schwindlig zu werden, wählten wir Purzelbäume als das passende Trainingsprogramm.
    Doch nicht nur das! Damit wir für die verschiedenen Oberflächen und Anziehungskräfte gewappnet sind, bot uns das Sackhüpfen im Tiefschnee optimale Trainingsvoraussetzungen.
    Bis zum nächsten Kurzbericht - eure Planetenflitzer

  • We have lift - STGSPACECADET'S training is underway.

    Our team got their training underway with the building an Astronaut Core activity. We watched the video and talked about the importance of being fit, especially if you want to be an astronaut. Next up was - fitness training which was great fun. Our next activity was Speed of Light, a great activity to test reaction times. We are going to try this activity again wearing thick gloves and compare our results.

  • Weltraumakrobatik trifft auf Astronauten-Gang

    Blogbeitrag 001 / Astronautengang / Sternzeit 01.2017

    In der Vorbereitung unserer Reise in unendliche Weiten, stand ein weiterer Meilenstein unserer Ausbildung am Programm.

    Die Mission: Weltraumakrobatik
    Die Aufgabe : Purzelbaumtraining

    Mit vollem Einsatz feilten wir an unserer Körperkoordination und unserem Gleichgewichtssinn, um in der Schwerelosigkeit Herr über unseren Körper zu sein und so die schwierigsten Experimente im All durchführen zu können.
    Unser Training führten wir in der Turnhalle durch und die Ergebnisse konnten sich sehen lassen.
    Der krönende Abschluss fand schlussendlich im Wasser statt. Wir wechselten den Aggregatzustand jedoch von flüssig auf fest.

  • Week 2-Evnigton Astronauts

    Fridays will never be the same again! Everyone looks forward to our Friday 'Mission X' challenge!

    This week, we learnt about coordination, balance and agility. We took our learning outside and practised our balance and tennis ball activities.
    The astronauts in training showed off their excellent balance as we threw balls against the playground wall, trying to catch the ball without losing balance...

    A few tennis balls later, (and a few practises later), we were much improved! We experimented with our body weight shifting either slightly backward or forwards and varying the position of our foot off the floor.

    After that, we carried out the group work activity, throwing the ball to everyone in our group and seeing who could score the highest number of consecutive catches without dropping the ball, or our 'balance' foot touching the ground! Our scores ranged from 12 to 88!

    Good work Evington Astronauts-on to the next mission...

  • Strength Training

    Major Tom's Team has been working hard at strength training and endurance training. Many students ran a mile or more on our second endurance training challenge. Most ran at least half a mile. Our first Strength Training was challenging. A few students thought they couldn't do push-ups but we decided to try and see how many we could do. We have also been working on our theme song video - Space Oddity. Enjoy!!

  • Houston, we've had a problem, but we're looking at it!

    Gleich die erste Mission hat das Team "4.0 X-r.a.y.s." der Ganztagssvolksschule Campus Monte Laa mächtig ins Schwitzen gebracht.
    Bei unserer ersten Mission standen alle 22 Kinder 30 Sekunden lang im Einbeinstand und warfen den Tennisball gegen eine Wand im Turnsaal.
    Anfänglich bereitete es den Kindern große Schwierigkeiten diese zwei Bewegungen zu koppeln.
    Vor allem das Werfen und Fangen des Tennisballs war für den einen oder anderen Zappelphilipp aus meiner Klasse kein Honiglecken.
    Trotz allem bewunderten mein Kollege und ich den Ehrgeiz, den spürbaren Teamzusammenhalt der Kinder und die stetig wachsende Freude, diese Aufgabe bewältigen zu wollen.
    Selbst unsere bewegungsunfreudigen Kinder hießen die erste Mission willkommen und waren felsenfest bemüht, es zu schaffen.
    Nicht nur im Turnsaal, auch im Klassenzimmer, versuchten wir die Aufgabe, leicht verändert, umzusetzen.
