Year 2 Launch - Looking Up, Looking Down

Y2s watched the short film Baboon on the Moon to launch their new topic- Looking Up, Looking Down.
Having watched and discussed the film the children got to meet the Baboon ( adult in role!)  who explained how he had  been kidnapped by NASA to keep the moon topped up with moonshine.  The Baboon described how lonely he was being  away from the jungle and family he loves. The children decided . in their role as problem solvers, that they could help the  Baboon.  After much discussion about animal cruelty , habitats and  and the importance of family the children set about contacting NASA and demanding the Baboons return to earth. After writing letters and meeting face to face the  problem solvers managed to persuade NASA to set the Baboon free!
