Year 5 Astronaut Day


5…4…3…2…1 -> Year 5 are go!

Today, the children entered Silsden Primary Space Academy to experience what it would be like to train as an astronaut. Throughout the day, they undertook a series of challenges (all based on real astronaut training tasks) to test their physical, mental and communication skills.

Highlights included a bleep test in the hall, a tricky numerical memory test, a repetitive origami task and a maze with reverse controls!

All children (worryingly?) are now fully-certificated qualified astronauts!
