Welcome to our school
Hello Class 8. I hope that you are all ok and that you have enjoyed some of the sunshine over half term. I spent much of the weekend glued to NASA live broadcasts to watch NASA astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley aboard the SpaceX Dragon Endeavour as they travelled to the International Space Station.
It was a historic launch for NASA because it was their first manned mission in 9 years since decommissioning the Space Shuttle. My favourite part is when Falcon 9 which, after sending the astronauts into space, returns to Earth and lands on a platform in the Atlantic Ocean! Look out for the interesting name of the platform!
You can experience flying the SpaceX Dragon Endeavour for yourself by going to the website below. It is a simulator and will let you try to dock the Dragon with the International Space Station
Please keep checking in to Purple Mash & Seesaw as I regularly put up a selection of tasks to help you keep your skills sharp.
This week's work includes the last chapter of Buster's Blitz.
I hope to see you all soon
