Year 5 get a letter from Downing Street
During their IPC topic, Mission to Mars, Year 5 children wrote to the Prime Minister urging him to invest in the space programme and in particular, Mars exploration.
The children were inspired by work they did during the unit of work and writing letters to the PM was a great way to apply their literacy skills (we were pleased to note that the reply says they were 'well written'!).
It was great to get a reply from Downing Street and we may yet get another one from the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.
