Our amazing afternoon started with a whole school assembly. During this, we went through the order, size and fun facts about each planet. After the assembly, we were lucky to have a mini space test. But, before that we had to undertake our Astronaut Training.

For our training, we had tasks. These tasks six were; making an origami swan, learning Russian, sorting beads with space gloves, blind trust mazes, memory game and finally making our own Space badges.

One child, ‘It was amazing to learn about the planets.’
