Year 5 Entry Point: Mission to Mars

Our Year 5 students endured a tough day of astronaut training at our Junior Campus, but did they exhibit the physical strength, stamina and mental agility required to complete the challenges?

Last week our Year 5 students experienced a taster of our ‘BIS astronaut training process’ as part of our first IPC topic ‘Mission to Mars’. Students participated in a range of simulated activities designed to develop specific skills such as physical fitness, problem solving, building with limited motor skills, coping with weightlessness and collaboration to name just a few. The ‘NASA commanders’ were extremely impressed with the engagement of the student astronauts and also with how they were able to identify and reflect on the skills they had developed during the training day.

The event was a wonderful opportunity for students to work with their peers across the year group and our new students integrated particularly well.

The good news is that all of our cadets made it through to the next round of training which will continue in our Science and IPC lessons this half-term!
