Sam W —- lunar landing

¬†Hi guys! This is my first time making a blog and I hope you enjoy it ūüôā¬†

What is the lunar landing?

The lunar landing was a giant event in history, it’s the thing that shaped our lives, the thing that shaped HUMANITY… It was… A rocket. Yeah, a rocket that went to space. Many people were over the moon (please excuse the pun) but it was a great thing at the time.

The people on the space ship:

The people were Neil Armstrong ,Edwin (Buzz) Aldrin, and Micheal Collins.  these were the brave men that travelled to the moon.Buzz and Armstrong brought back 48.5Ib of material including 50 rocks samples of lunar soil and rock.

Apollo 11 was the first flight to send people to the Moon. It was done by NASA, the America space group. It went up to space on 16 July 1969, carrying three astronauts: Neil, Buzz and Michael. On 20 July 1969, Armstrong and Aldrin became the first humans to land on the moon, while Collins stayed in orbit around the Moon.

The flight was part of the space race. It finished the plan set by John Kennedy in 1961 to “land a man on the moon, and return him safely to the Earth”, before the 1960s.

Bea – Amazing Moon Facts.

On the 20th of July 1969, three amazing astronauts went up to the moon. This is a day that no one will ever forget on Apollo 11. Their names were Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins. Neil went up into space and stepped on the moon while Michael Collins stayed in the space ship. Buzz also went on the moon with Neil. Things to do there – it is not always fun but bouncing around is really fun. It may get boring after a while though.

Hope you like my blog.

Neptune~Nevina 5DF

Neptune is the 9th planet in our Solar System. It is also the windiest planet in our Solar System, as it can reach wind speeds of 2173 mph. Inside, on the core, Neptune can reach up to 7000 degrees (Celsius) but outside on the surface it can get to -219 degrees (Celsius).

Neptune 

When an Astronomer, Galeo,  first discovered it in 1636 he thought it was a star, because of its slow orbit. In 1845 some other mathematical Astronomers  discovered it and finally qualified it as a Planet.

Anglian Water By Lacey 5T

Anglian Water

A few days ago, we has a visit from a member of Anglian Water called Richard. He taught us about how water is cleaned and transfered into our home. Each table had cube-shapes buckets and we had to put random thing in there like cotton buds, washing powder, water, dehydrated urine and other things. It looked like dirty coke or SUPER dirty chocolate milkshake! He also told us a story about A puppy being flushed down the toilet.  We had a worksheet similar to the picture above, where we had to stick in the paragraphs that tell you about what happens and you have to stick them in the right places. Well, I have to leave now. If you want me to tell you the Puppy story, ask me. Bye.

Floods (1998) – Saule 5C

picture 119 years ago, there were 10 days of heavy rainfall. Raining and raining and raining without stopping for a rest. One morning, all the local residents of Far Cotton woke up to the swirl of water invading their innocent homes, and destroying anything that comes in its way! All their food was destroyed but luckily the local supermarkets such as Tesco were prepared. They had loaded lots and lots of food into gigantic lorries which were driven to the top of a hill for people with no food. Police knocked on everyone’s doors to make sure that nobody was left out.¬†

Nottingham Castle – Tari 5T

On Wednesday the 22nd of March 2017 Year 5 went to Nottingham Castle to learn more about Robin Hood. Firstly, we entered a dark hole which is also known as Mortimer’s hole and we followed a the tunnel where Robin hood crept and rescued Maid Marian. Then we ended up in the sheriff’s deadly wine cellar. After that, we entered the exhibition for 30 minutes and we searched for answers that were on the walls on big pieces of paper. Next, we had our tasty refreshing lunch and after we that we went to a drama room where some people acted as Robin Hood, Friar Tuck, Maid Marian and many more. After that, we got to hold some ancient pottery and tried some armour on. I tried on the extreme heavy chain mail . Sadly, we had to leave Nottingham Castle but apart from that I had a wonderful time. My favorite part was when we met Friar Tuck and entered Mortimer’s hole.
