Visit to Space


11th March 2019

Today, we received an urgent message from, ‘Billy’ The Man on Mars. Bob had rang in sick and needed our help. We put on our space helmets and jumped on board the rocket ship.

We held on tight and made our galactic journey to the moon.

We excitedly, burst through the doors, ready to do our jobs.

We cleaned the mess on the moon.

Next, we entertained the tourists.

Then we stopped for a quick break and enjoyed some delicious space biscuits.

Our last job was to check the moon for aliens and write a list for Bob.

We finally jumped on board the rocket and headed home!
