Pupils become explorers at Hilltop First School

Astronauts, jungle adventurers and pirates made an appearance at Hilltop First School in Windsor on Monday.

Key stage one pupils at the school in Clewer Hill Road dressed up as explorers for the day, having spent the week before learning about Neil Armstrong.

They have been writing about space, doing art in the style of Jackson Pollock to create stars and designing their own space suits.

They also learnt about Edmund Hillary, who climbed Mount Everest, and were challenged to build their own tents.

Year one and two teacher Rhiannon Smith said: “There was a really eclectic mix of explorers.

“There was a big push for the costumes being as home made as possible.

“It was a creative way for them to learn and hopefully at the end of the day they went home and told their parents every detail.”
