Rockets and star ships that can zoom you through space, time and beyond.
On my teacher travels I was asked to cover a week with Year 5 during the Year 6 Sats testing. Their task was all about Space and they were writing stories about Space Travel.We thought of all the different ways you could travel in fiction.
Rockets spaceships and other craft both in history and fiction.
Harry Potter uses a port-key and flue powder while Hermione Granger uses her time-turner.
Comic book character, ‘Flash’, uses his speed.
The Delorian Car is used in ‘Back to the Future’.
In ‘The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe,’ they went through the Wardrobe.
In this school they even had their own cupboard portal where the SAT’s papers are kept. The head or deputy would disappear into the cupboard and emerge armed with important papers.
We looked at a few real buses decorated with a space theme and then the children were given a challenge:-
Your bus must have space pictures and designs
Your space bus must be bright and colourful.
Your bus must have a name clearly on its side!
A number plate with 3 letters and 3 numbers.
What will you call it?
What colours will you use?’
On Friday they travelled home with them in Space and Time and I travelled off on my teaching journey to another school.
“Thank you for teaching us, it is sad you have to go now, THANK YOU for a lovely week.” said Scarlet.
It certainly was a good week and I was glad the children enjoyed the visit but now, like Jay-Jay, for me a new adventure must begin.
Why not have a go and create a Spacebus of your own.
I'd love to see your ideas.
