On December 17 2019 ,the children of the fourth and fifth classes met a nice young man, Saverio. Originally from Montà, in 2005 Saverio had a fantastic experience: he experienced a flight in zero gravity and floating without weight.He participated in a selection of volunteers and took part in a flight with a special plane, the G-Force one, which took off from Miami, USA, rose to 10,000 meters on the Gulf of Mexico and dropped to 45 degrees to cancel the force of gravity!
with him were an 86 year old man and a disabled girl, the first to experience weightless flight. It is never late to make a dream come true. Saverio shared pictures, memories and emotions with the kids and told them that he was chosen for two reasons: knowledge of English and good physical shape.
Reception really enjoyed taking part in another Erasmus project celebration, Space Day! All of the children looked fantastic and were very keen to get involved in all of the space activities! Some children made alien masks, other split pin astronauts and some even made space themed stick puppets!
We enjoyed looking at the night sky and discovered that some stars make patterns that we call Constellations. We looked at some of the most famous Constellations like ‘The big dipper’ and ‘Orion’. We made our own space paintings by flicking paint from our brush and then added our own Constellation to our paintings. We each made our own telescope and used them to explore our wonderful paintings.
