Bluebells Class had already decided which jobs they could do to help Neil Armstrong in his Apollo 11 Mission. They had the skills to be a team of expert pilots, astronauts, astronomers, engineers, scientists and mission controllers.
Neil Armstrong (adult in role) showed the Bluebells team where he wanted to land on the Moon, - a nice flat area called Tranquility.
Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Buzz Aldrin (pupils in role) strapped themselves into their seats in the tiny cockpit of Apollo 11 and listened to the last instructions through the headphones.
Mission Control (pupils) began the countdown, filled with excitement and nerves.......
5, 4, 3, 2, 1,,,,,,,WE HAVE LIFT OFF! We watched as the rocket burst into action. Plumes of red fire and clouds of ash filled the sky. The epic journey had started successfully.....
The photographers (pupils) captured the scene, the news reporters (pupils) jotted notes and the crowd (pupils) all watched on in amazement.
As we were acting out the scenes, we had footage of the real event back in 1969 playing. A moment in history that 'wowed' us! We can't wait to get to the Moon!
