CRASH! What's that in the playground? Let's go outside and take a look. Stand back everyone - it looks like a UFO has crashed-landed!
Find out who might have landed by exploring the craft and investigating scattered scientific specimens. Create a ‘Welcome to Earth’ box for an alien explorer. What can you put in it to help explain what life is like on our planet?
Would you like to be an astronaut? You'll need a pretty sturdy spacecraft if you do. Start off small by making an air-propelled rocket… WHOOSH! How far can you make it travel?
Find out the name of the planets. There's Mercury, Neptune, Mars and… do you know any others? I've forgotten the rest!
Then, an alien is found… can you help him get home? It's got the experts in a right kerfuffle. Professor Pong doesn't know what to do!
Are you ready to take off Year 1?
Hold tight… 5 4 3 2 1 … LIFT OFF!
