Steven the Spaceman!

05/07/17

Our Year 1 classes were extremely fortunate today because they were visited by Steven the Spaceman! He told them lots of crazy and interesting facts about space.

The time flew by as the children became totally absorbed in everything he had to say. During each fast-paced fuelled session both classes learnt all about NASA, Neil Armstrong, Tim Peake, the various space missions, dangers of space, facts about the ISS (International Space Station), plus the purpose of an astronaut’s spacesuit.

Some children were lucky enough to try on a spacesuit and they even found out what happens when an astronaut needs to go to the toilet; it made some of them reconsider the possibility of space travel!
