Britain’s Tim Peake Begins his spacewalk!

Today we all met in the hall to watch Major Peake step into space as part of a six-and-a-half-hour mission to repair a broken power unit on the International Space Station. We all sat in amazement as we watch him check his space suit and the equipment on the outside of the Space Station.  We even got a glimpse of the Earth!

Happy New Year to you all.  This term, our topics will have a science focus with lots of practical activities and investigations to carry out.  We will start by looking at sound and the children will have the opportunity to make their own instruments.
