On Tuesday 4th March, Miss Smith came flying into our classroom saying that she had just seen something zoom past her window and then a loud BANG! We were all intrigued, so we went to investigate.
We searched in the playground ...
Then we searched the field.
Lola saw something in the distance, "I can see something" she said.
Carefully, Year 1 crept across the muddy field. Guess what we found???
We took everything we found back to the classroom and worked out what we had.
It was a rocket.
We found two funny little creatures. We were not sure what they were. Benjamin thought they might be aliens that had crash landed in our school and it was their rocket that we found broken.
Here is a photograph of the aliens we found.
We wanted to find out more information about the aliens so we talked about how we could communicate with them. We tried talking alien to them, but they didn't answer. Somebody thought they might be shy and scared to talk to us so we decided to write to them. We all wrote a question that we would like to know about the aliens.
Lots of children asked them what their names were and where did they come from.
After dinner on Wednesday we got a surprised when we went back into the classroom. The Aliens had written back to us!
They told us that they were called Zigh and Zay, they came from the planet Zoob and they spoke Zoobish.
Once they had dried and were hard, we painted them according to our designs and left them to dry.
Then Mrs Smith hung them from the ceiling outside our classroom.
