Astro Charlie has now completed his mission to the Moon. All the activities and points collected by your students have been added to the points from other countries. So the Mission Goal has been achieved! Astro Charlie has been joined by his Astro Friends and the ESA Mascot, Paxi! Why not post this picture on the wall of your school and send us pictures of your Mission X displays.
Watch out for Barney interviewing Tim Peake on April 10th at 5.30 on Blue Peter on CBBC! Barney then visits Summerville Primary School in Salford where he has a go at training as an astronaut alongside the pupils.
Year 5 finished their last science mission last week by completing Crew Asswmbly. They all wore two pairs of gloves (one very large) and then worked in teams to put together a puzzle and biuld a cup pyramid. They also sorted some statements about the Earth, Sun and Moon into true and false groups and then they ate some freeze dried astronaut ice cream and drank juice form pouches just like the astronauuts do! We learnt a lot and had great fun completing Mission X 2014.
