The Space Race

In 3A, we are learning about the Space Race. The Space Race was a competition between Russia and America, the winner was the country with the first person on the moon. We have learnt that the first living creatures in space were fruit flies, sent by the Russians. Then the Russians sent a monkey called Albert and a dog called Laika. The first people on the moon were Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong from America.

We are Astronauts!

In year 3 we are learning about space. We did a timeline from V2 to Tim Peake and a front cover with lots of space words. I found out that fruit flies were sent to space with a supply of corn to eat. I also learnt Albert the monkey was sent to space in V2. I have been looking forward to this topic since year 2.
