This week has been AMAZING!
On Monday we all tried spinning on a chair with wheels without help. It is REALLY difficult on your own because you need somebody or something to push or pull onto because you cannot move all by yourself. We did this because we wanted to see how gravity works. Gravity was discovered by Sir Isaac Newton nearly three centuries ago. If you tried to spin on a chair in space, you would just keep spinning round and round and couldn’t stop but on Earth it is hard to move and when you do you can put your feet down to stop.
On Tuesday we all tried to draw a spacesuit for our Out Of This World book. First we had to draw the body of the spaceman in the suit, then all the gadgets on the spacesuit and then his helmet. We did have a picture to help us, but it was still tricky. When we had drawn it we coloured it in.
We have had a really busy and fun week learning more about Space. I wonder what we will learn next week. I can’t wait.
