Space Week 2021

We celebrated ‘Space Week’ from Monday  4th of October to Friday 8th of October last week. 

This year, we introduced the “Space Booklet” for all pupils in our school. The Space booklet was packed full of space facts, information, puzzles, colouring sheets, and much more. During the week, the pupils worked on their booklets which led to some fascinating discussions about Space. 

As well as this there were many Space Week themed activities in all classes during ‘Space Week’ this year including; space engineering projects, art, poetry, experiments, space facts, and much more. 

Please see a snapshot of some of the Space activities in the classes during Space Week 2021.
