Year 1 - Astronaut Training School
The Rabbits have been learning about Neil Armstrong and used role play to help them to remember some key facts about his mission to the moon.
‘Astronaut training’ was undertaken by all to see if Year 1 had the skills needed to take their own moon trip! They tested how strong their lungs are by blowing paper through a straw and then tested their dexterity by trying to put pegs into a board and doing some threading while wearing astronaut gloves. Balance and core strength training involved walking on stilts and balancing on space hoppers.
All the Rabbits passed their training and they put on their space helmets ready to board Apollo 11. After launching into space they took their momentous first steps on the moon! While there they collected moon rocks to bring back to Earth to investigate.
