Moondust on my Socks

Today we were visited by Peter who told us a story about a journey to the moon!!
The children in the story were kidnapped by an alien and taken for a quick visit to the moon before tea!

After lots of questions our task was then to make a moving rocket out of card.  The finished results were great.  But then we had to think about about using electrical lights to send alien messages.  That was to be our next task.  We all learned a lot about circuits and switches and we then sent messages to each other using a simplified form of Morse code.

Take a look at the photos.  We were all successful and managed to communicate!

 After break our next activity of the day was to create a tree out of 4 sheets of A4 paper and scissors.  It was really HARD!  Getting the tree to stand up was very tricky!  But eventually we chose two winners, Elena and Lucille  made a very respectable tree and its ability to stand was a major strength.

What a busy week so far and its only Wednesday!
