Space Detectives - February 2019
Eagles crew learnt what it takes to be an astronaut when Jo from Space Detectives came in to explain the necessary skills required. Over the course of the morning, they explored a range of activities each linked with a particular skill needed to become an astronaut: communication, team work, endurance, perseverance, fitness, mental agility, quick reactions, calm under pressure, trust, leadership and problem solving. They were also able to step into the virtual 3D world of space by using virtual reality!
Out of this World - January 2019
To launch our new project each home team was challenged to make a model of our solar system, a travel brochure page on a particular planet and a mnemonic (memory aid) to help remember the order of the planets.
The challenge was on ... could Eagles crew find out why the project was called 'Dragons from the North', create a flag, make a Viking longboat and present all of this by 2:15pm?
Yes - they sure could!
