Summer One – To Infinity and Beyond

It is finally time for one of my favourite projects, and one that I know you are all excited about…  Space! There are lots of interesting things planned for us this half term: learning about our solar system, making digital space animations and of course our trip to Jodrell Bank!

Lots of you already know some interesting facts that you can share on our blog page, but if you are stuck for ideas to research then have a think about the article below.

What is the most important skill to be an astronaut and why?
