5th February – Alien invasion!
You may have heard Monday morning’s newsflash about the sighting of a UFO over Ashton under Hill and it’s subsequent landing on the roof of school or perhaps you have noticed that underpants have gone missing from your house this week.
Panic not ! The imaginative and resourceful Acorn children have been on the case all week. After reading the story ‘Aliens Love Underpants’ we have written many letters to the alien occupants of the spaceship reprimanding them for stealing and urging them to return all missing pants; we have investigated how rockets get into space, designed our own spaceships and explained to them how to mend their broken one.
Along the way we have created our own aliens, some of them even with moving parts , investigated moon sand and learned about the planets in the solar system and made some amazing solar system mobiles and models.
This morning’s news flash informed us that the alien spaceship has once again blasted off on its return journey into space which would be the end of the story if it weren’t for the fact that a mystery spherical silver object has been left behind on the roof of school. Early theories from Acorn pupils suggest it may be a parcel of returned underpants, a gift from departing aliens or even an alien egg … Watch this space to find out what the inventive children of Acorn Class will make of this latest development.
