5MM has their Space Camp on Thursday 1st December!
Children arrived, excited for the evening ahead! They then split into three teams -Team Peake, Team Aldrin and Team Armstrong. Each team then rotated around three different activities.
Does the surface of a planet affect the size of the crater produced? Children enjoyed investigating this using flour, rice and sugar.
The second activity was art based. Children enjoyed creating their own nebulae pictures using pastels and chalks.
The third activity was with with an astronomer from Warwick University. Unfortunately these was lots of cloud cover so, instead of using our telescope to look at the stars, we created the solar system to scale.
Finally we all got an iPad and went outside stargazing using the Star Walk app.
We then all came back inside and warmed up with hot chocolate while watching Space Chimps.
The best part of the evening was seeing that Tim Peake himself had liked on of our tweets!

The Lichfield Cathedral Choir Service will take place on Wednesday 7th December. All children involved (25 children from Years 5 and 6) have had letters and purchased tickets have been sent home. The service begins at 7.15 pm and children need to be there by 6.50pm. The service will last for approximately one and a quarter hours. Further details are featured in the letter.
Choir members are able to access all the music on the Key Stage 2 area of Moodle in order to rehearse at home.
The children have been rehearsing hard and sound fabulous. We are very excited to have the opportunity to show off their hard work and angelic voices!

The Eco Team need your help please. Their mission is to recycle as many used stamps as possible! They are going to send the stamps to the Oxfam Charity, to help other children around the world.
The stamps must be used. Please tear the stamps off the envelope, leaving a 1cm border around the edge. There's a stamp box outside the Oaks office to post the used stamps in.
WCPS will also be competing against Hollyfield to see which school can collect the most. We're keen to keep our two year winning reign!
