Mission: P7AY-1N-A-0AY

One small step for man: one giant leap for Hunwick-kind

Mission: P7AY-1N-A-0AY launched in the early hours of Thursday 1st November 2018 as Class Five's acting skills soared high above the village of Hunwick proving that only the stars were well and truly the limit. Carefully navigating through drama games, all the while dodging satellites and comets, pupils were put through their paces by Flight Commander Lisa. From here they learnt about the BIG BANG's dramatic entrance, how the vindictive meteors have bullied the Moon leaving their marks and just how sulky Saturn is since it doesn't have life on it. Galaxy, Mars and Milk Way all made an appearance too - although disappointingly for some pupils - they were not the edible kind. After only a day of rehearsals, pupils performed their play to the rest of Key Stage 2.

Here's what some of the pupils had to say about the experience:

Tyler: “I never knew that a black hole could swallow the Sun, let alone our planet. I was a bit nervous at the start of the day, but I still did it and proved to myself that I could do it. That made me feel proud.”

Amy: “I really enjoyed it because I learnt new things: I didn't know that Jupiter had rings around it - I just thought it was Saturn. It was a great opportunity for our class to work as a team especially consider how we had less than a day to put the performance together.”
