As part of our geography work in year 5, we have been studying the environmental impact of the moorland fires. We went on a local area walk with John (Tameside countryside and green spaces warden) to have a closer look at the damage and to take part in a project to help restore the moorlands. We collected lots of acorns to bring back to school and plant. We are hoping that we can successfully grow these acorns into saplings that can then be used as part of the replanting of the moorland. 

As part of our science work on earth and space, we had a visit from Mr B the spaceman. He talked to us about his replica space suit (a copy of the suits used by the NASA astronauts who were part the Apollo missions) and the space race between America and Russia. We took part in some workshops and got to look at some cool artefacts.
