The upcoming half term we will be turning our attention to Explorers!

Dear Diary...

Our first outcome is to write about a real life event, we have chosen to focus on Neil Armstrong and his mission to the moon.  We will spend two weeks learning all about the moon landings in 1969 and perfect our own diary entry of the magnificent occasion as we become Neil Armstrong himself.


We introduced our focus in the most exciting and catching way using the app AR Moon on the iPads, we watched through virtual reality the launch of the Apollo 11 and walking around on the moon! Here are a few photographs we would like to share...
