Outer Space!

We have been learning all about Space in school the last two weeks and the children loved this topic. 

They learned about the different planets in our Solar System, as well as how astronauts survive in Space and what other objects can be found orbiting the Earth! 

They got to play in a Space Station, make 'out of this world' art work and build their own rocket ships, very cool!
