Last week in year 4, we completed a ‘Big Write.’ Following the safe landing of Tim Peake, we have been thinking in class about what it would be like to be an astronaut. To explore this further, we decided to write a first-hand account about what it would be like to blast off into space!
Before we planned our piece we thought about several questions.
- What would you have to do to become an astronaut?
- What would it feel like to go to space in a rocket?
- What would we look forward to doing when we got to space?
The children were provided some excellent ideas and worked very hard on their writing. Many of our astronauts were looking forward to their first space walk and even their first space ice cream!
Here are some pictures of the children with their work and some quotes from the day.
“I can’t wait to get to space and do a moon walk!” – Kayla
“When I get to space, I am going to contact home and tell them all about my trip.” – Leah.
