At the beginning of term, we were welcomed into the Astronaut Academy and launched ourselves into Space with a truly fun filled day. We joined a brave group of boys and girls to take part in Astronaut training. There were certain skills and characteristics we needed to possess as an astronaut or acquire during our training. Throughout the day, we were tested on our physical, social and mental abilities. We had to complete various training activities: a memory test; time and space (which involved timing ourselves in a confined space for 2 minutes while lacing up a shoe); docking station; mission patch designs; team building; space puzzle (which involved completing a puzzle while wearing astronaut gloves) and a gruelling physical test. We are thrilled to say we successfully completed all of our tasks.
Well Done Year 5!
