Man on the moon

On launch day the children will look closely at a range of pictures that will inspire their curiosity about the past. Who, what, where, when, and why? Through careful modelling the children will learn how to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments and develop perspective and judgement. The journey will guide the children through Hampshire’s six step enquiry process. Using ‘washing line’ stories, a game of ‘Would I Lie to You?’, catchy songs and reading comprehension the Robins will collect enough information to begin to make sense of and process the details. To make meaning and connections to Neil Armstrong’s life, we will become radio presenters and interviewees… Who will be in the hot seat? Just when we are beginning to pull apart the significance of being the first man on the moon, in walks someone that believes it is not a giant leap for mankind at all.  This opposing view will provide the Robins with the opportunity to check, develop and refine their understanding before completing their final project.

Outcome:  Armed full of knowledge about Neil Armstrong and the first moon landing, children will take a trip to the Winchester Science centre and fly through the stars to the planetarium.
