Learning By Topic KS1: Space and History

With an adult discuss what the ‘Space Race’ was.

Who is Tim Peake and what important role has he played in modern space travel?

In 2019, it was the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing. Find out about this important event; ask adults who are old enough if they can remember watching the moon landing on TV or hearing about it? What was the excitement level like? You could even ask them how life was different and how it is similar to today (e.g. technology). Perhaps you could interview a few people who are old enough to remember this great historical event.
