The day an Astronaut came to our class

by Lucy Coyle On Monday the 4th of November, Bob Thirsk, a Canadian astronaut, came to visit 6th Class. He was in Newport to present Chloe with her award for the Mayo Dark Skies logo competition. While Bob was here, he told us some facts about space. He said that when you're in space you grow 3cm taller. He also told our class that in space they only had freeze dried food and that meant when they wanted food, they had to add water, so it was like liquid. He mentioned that while in space your bones get weaker and your heart gets smaller so it;s like staying in bed for 6 months. Bob said he had to exercise for 2 hours each day. I'm so glad that we got to meet a real astronaut who spent 205

Save your school bags!

Noeline Haylett will be shipping backpacks and school bags to Ghana after Christmas, so we are asking parents to start saving old or spare school bags they may have so that we can donate to Noeline and her great work with school children in Africa. We ask that you keep any school bags, back packs or rucksacks you may have close to hand at home and we will notify you of the dates you can bring them to the school (just before Christmas)
