Year One – Eggonauts

Year One – Eggonauts
Year 1 have been learning about Tim Peake, his time on the International Space Station and then how he returned to Earth. We learnt how much of the rocket goes into space and that it is only the very top of the rocket; the landing module, that returns back to Earth.
In groups the children designed their own space landing modules to transport their Eggonaut safely back to Earth. The children made their modules using a variety of resources.
As a year group we went out onto the playground to test these modules…
5…4…3… 2… 1…! Which ones do you think were successful?
Afterwards we evaluated our modules, discussing what was successful and what we would improve next time.
