Crash landing site

The children in Year 1 could not believe their eyes on Monday this week, when they went out to the back playground and discovered that there had been a crash landing. The scene was safely marked up as the children went looking for clues to find out what it could be. We found a star map for space travellers, empty packets of Milky Way, Galaxy and Mars bars! We looked carefully at the crash site and the children had lots of ideas, scenarios and questions. Back in class we discussed what we had seen and found, and this led into our Space Learning Journey, which we'll be looking at this half-term. We are so fortunate that our caretaker Mr Waren spotted the crash site and safely cordoned off the area, and that he was able to recycle the debris.
