This half term Year 1 have been focusing on important people and significant events. We have learnt key facts about Neil Armstrong, Tim Peak and their adventures into space. We have also focused on the famous moon buggy. The children learnt about the exploration of the moon and the famous roving vehicle. The children learnt key components of the buggy and how it survived driving in space.
This half term history has really aided our writing. The children enjoyed writing fact files about Neil Armstrong's life.
This week in history the children have been learning about space travel over time. They looked at key events between 1942-2015. The children worked in small groups and created a time line of events.
