Last Wednesday Room thirteen travelled to the Cornwall Park in a bus to visit the Stardome. We learned that the stars are hot. We had activities that told us about who went on the moon first. It was amazing. We also had a picnic and we played with the flying fox and the train.

The Moon was probably made 4.5 billion years ago when a large object hit the Earth and blasted out rocks that came together to orbit round the Earth. The Moon is much smaller than the Earth. It is airless, waterless and lifeless. The gravity of the Moon, causes two high tides on the Earth every day.
The first person to walk on the Moon was the American astronaut, Neil Armstrong. He stepped out of his space craft, the Eagle, on 21 July 1969 and said these famous words, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”.
