Moon Mission 2017 at St Birinus School

​Year 5 children have spent the last few weeks designing and creating mooon buggies for a special Moon Mission day at St Birinus School.  Today Mrs Coyle and Mrs Davies took 16 children and four moon buggies to St Birinus. The buggies were tested to see how fast they could travel over a flat surface, how well they could transport moon rock over rough terrain and lastly to see how well they coped with the challenge that is gravity.  During the day, the children had the opportunity to do some cooking of danish pastries in the shape of flying saucers with aliens! In additiion, they made a space mobile and a wooden keyring using a coping saw and file. All 16 children represented the school very well throughout the day. There was a lot of Blue zone learning and engagement. It was a great pleasure to take each one of them, and to top it all Manor school won two awards for best engineered design and best overall moon buggy - what an incredible achievement that was! Well done Year 5!IMAG0481.jpg
