Mission successful as Perse Pelican children take off with Space Day
Nursery children at The Perse Pelican lifted off on their special Space Day.
The young astronauts flew to the moon in their very own rocket and although it was a bit of a bumpy ride, everyone arrived safely.
They enjoyed a rather wet but exciting moonwalk, trying to avoid all the craters as they stepped, jumped and hopped across the surface of the moon.
It was then back on the rocket for the return journey to mission control, where they made tasty space rock cakes and enjoyed lots of fun and games.
Nursery teacher Emma Brunt said: “Space has been our topic for this half term and the children have loved it.
“Our Space Day was a lovely way for the children to use their imagination and for some to live their dream of being an astronaut and going in a rocket to the moon!”
