Year One watched a video explaining what is is like to be an astronaut on the International Space Station.
The children were asked to think of questions they could ask the astronauts when talking to them.
Another part of the topic work was to imagine being an alien.
After watching another video explaining how they were going to be
"transformed" - the children were asked to write some sentences as an alien.
