It has been great to read such a marvellous range of words used to describe Space. This makes us very excited for the Issue ahead.
As always it was very hard to pick winners but we are happy to announce...
Our Primary winner this week is outstanding_turkey of Hammond Junior School. Their three words, and following explanation, were simple and effective. This was a great example of how you don't need to write a lot for competitions - but to make your words count!
Our Secondary winner is creative_sparrow of The Ruth Gorse Academy. Creative_sparrow made original choices and in their reasons, reflected on the impact that space has on us and these theme ran throughout the answer. Well done!
Thank you to all who entered! There will be another competition added this afternoon. Also, have you ever wanted to ask an astronaut a question? Now you can! Click here to see our experts who are ready to take your questions!
It has been called '"the final frontier".
Douglas Adam described it as "hugely mind-bogglingly big".
...and astronaut Christa McAuliffe says it is "everyone's business".
Your next Issue is all about SPACE! 2019 has seen the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, the discovery of water on a habitable planet, and possibly the first crime in space. This term you'll be tackling the big questions around 21st century space exploration. You'll hear more about it in the coming weeks from your teachers and here on the Hub. We can't wait to hear your thoughts!
Some of you might be back at school, some of you might be on half-term. Whichever is true for you, this week's competition is open to all!
This week's competition asks:
What 3 words would you choose to describe 'space' and why?
Try to think of three separate words - they don't need to make sense together or form a sentence. They might be describing what space is like, or how it makes you feel, or be looking at space from another angle. It's up to you!
We're looking for original ideas, with thoughtful reasons.
The competition closes at 10am on Friday 1st November. Good luck!
