ASPIRE GOES TO SPACE

Pupils explore their new space station Pupils explore their new space station

Reception and Year 1 children at ASPIRE have been left wondering ‘what else is out there’ after starting work on their new topic - space.

The children have already been learning about Neil Armstrong, the first person to walk on the moon, and what astronauts wear.

They have also been going on their own space missions after creating space suits and a space station.

Pupils worked together to design ASPIRE 11, the centre’s very own rocket, before placing it in the classroom’s dedicated space zone.

The area, exclusively for ASPIRE’s little astronauts, is decorated with glow-in-the-dark stars, space-related pictures and books, and high-tech torches to help them on their missions.

Children will also be learning about planets and the solar system as part of the topic.
