On Thursday the 19th November ,Temple Primary School,in Cheetham Hill,Manchester,had a space super learning day led by our fantastic Space Cadets .
The point of the day was to encourage all of the classes to learn more about Tim Peake's Mission to the ISS as well as a great opportunity for all pupils and staff to take part in the Mission X activities .
To set the tone of the day and stimulate the pupils interest in Space we had a portable planetarium in school on the Monday ,followed by a session using infrared cameras which everyone thought was awesome!!
The Space Cadets ,who have been training hard for the past 5 weeks , did an amazing job of really engaging with their peers and making the Missions exciting, as well as passing on the knowledge that they had learnt along the way.
Well done to you all, you definitely have the making of future astronauts!!!!
P3 at Balmuildy Primary School have had another fantastic few weeks. They are preparing to launch vinegar and baking soda rockets (when the Scottish weather clears) have learned about newtons 2nd and 3rd laws through balloon rockets. Taken to the gym to Jump for the Moon, complete Crew Strength Training and test their reaction speeds with The Speed of Light. Another exciting and fun packed few weeks.
Balmuildy Primary school have been busy this week building a junk ISS and using K'NEX and Lego to build rockets and exploration buggies. They completed Crew Assembly and gave the teachers lots to laugh at. Building an astronaut core made them think about their bodies and Explore and Discover threw up some interesting problems to solve. What another fabulous week.
60 students from Year 5 have started their astronaut training challenge. Their first task is to research Tim Peake and create a powerpoint presentation. Lots of inspiration from http://www.principia.org.uk and the Sokol spacesuit visit and Heather MacRae from the Mission X team.
