Listen to Volga class (year 5) talk about astronaut Tim Peake’s launch into space and hear real audio of the launch. The students also talk about life in space, they make a poem from a newspaper page (Beat Box Cat), talk about their typical Christmas and play Repeat at Home: Artists where they try to draw a famous work of art based on someone’s description of it.  (See the paintings here and here). Finally, listen to Mr Farrow’s song choice if he was stuck on a Desert Island.
