This week as part of the IPC entry point for ‘Mission to Mars’, all Year 5 children from both TX and APP campuses participated in NASA training. This involved defying gravity by experiencing weightlessness in the pool as well as completing different activities such as;
- an obstacle course,
- building lego towers whilst wearing very big gloves,
- thinking about what we might say if we met an alien,
- creating green screen pictures,
- using a variety of apps to increase our knowledge of space.
All the children participated with great enthusiasm and showed perseverance when they encountered challenges. We are now ready to start our ‘Mission to Mars’!
