Three competitions have been running in advance of the week and you are reminded that all competition entries must be handed in to form teachers by Monday 9th November. Entry to all competitions is voluntary; all three are open to children from Nursery to Year 6 and your child may enter as many as they like (but limited to one entry per child per competition please).
1. Write a poem about Space. Poems could be about planets, about exploration, spaceships, satellites, or any other space-related topic.
2. Design a space rocket. Pupils may use any materials and rockets may be any size - as long as they can transported to school easily!
3. Inventions challenge: to design either a piece of exercise equipment or any other invention that might be useful in the International Space Station.
On Launch Day, Monday 9th November, please send your child to school dressed as something to do with science or Space. Astronauts, aliens and space explorers will be welcomed alongside astronomers, physicists, famous scientists, test tubes...let your imagination run wild!
During the week, children will enjoy special lessons and workshops about Space. There will be an evening talk for Year 3-6 pupils and their parents, details of which were sent out to families before half term. After school on Tuesday 10th November, parents are welcome to join us for our rocket launching at Upper School from 4 p.m.
We look forward to exploring Space together!
