One day there was a man, and the man`s name was Frederick. He wanted to go to the moon, and he was rich. He bought a space suit, and he got a rocket. He set off, but when he got there his space ship would not land, so he got his jet pack and flew to the moon. He felt good and amazed. Even after 40 years his foot prints are still there!
The surface of the moon is soft and it`s made out of dust.
In space you can’t cry because there is no gravity.
There is no wind in space.
You would fall through Saturn because it`s liquid gas.
The Moon (or Luna) is the Earth’s only natural satellite and was formed 4.6 billion years ago around some 30–50 million years after the formation of the solar system. The Moon is in synchronous rotation with Earth meaning the same side is always facing the Earth. The first unmanned mission to the Moon was in 1959 by the Soviet Lunar Program with the first manned landing being Apollo 11 in 1969.

Fantastic work Zac, well done!
Man on the moon
My name is Neil Armstrong and I was the first man to step foot on the moon. The year was 1969 and it was a ‘giant leap for mankind’. To think that my footprint is still there, forty years on. I have taken many footsteps in my lifetime but that was the most important one and it will be remembered forever. Coming home we were welcomed as heroes with a ticker-tape welcome. The whole world was watching on their black and white TV sets. Life for me was never the same and I will go down in history as the first man on the moon.
Excellent writing Laurie. I really enjoyed reading this.
About five years ago, an astronaut named Neil Alden Armstrong (most of the time called Neil Armstrong) was sent from
NASA to go the moon. When he reached there, he came out of the Rocket and stepped on to the dusty surface of the Moon. He was the first person to put his foot on the Moon. Everyone around the globe were anxiously waiting to hear the first words that he would speak. Then he said, ‘a small step for man, but a giant leap for mankind’. There were two more astronaut with him called Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins.
Captain Starburst was a very clever astronaut who had been alone in space for 3 months. His mission was to explore the moon and record any alien activity. Up until now he had not seen anything to do with aliens… Then in front of him on board his spacecraft appeared a strange creature.
“Who are you?!” Shouted Starburst. “I am Goosenka Doom, and mean you no harm.” They spoke for many hours about how aliens have been living amongst humans for many decades. Surprised to hear this news Starburst asked His new friend how this was possible. Goosenka then stood up and transformed into a identical version of the Captain. He then ate the captain and flew back to earth.
I am James the Space Explorer and I was walking on the Moon when I found a sample of rock that I had never seen before! So I picked it up and put it in my bag. Then I walked back to the space ship. I was almost at Earth when my rock bag started to shake so I stopped the rocket, which is quite difficult to do in space!
I flew towards my sample bag. Slowly and carefully, I opened the bag…….
Out of the bag popped a rat!!! A space rat called Jimmy. We are now best friends.
That must have been a surprise. What does your space rat eat? Moon cheese?
Being in space is nothing like being on Earth. There is no air or gravity in space so an astronaut needs a spacesuit to keep him alive when he is outside of the spaceship. His spacesuit helps him to breathe oxygen. The spacesuit is made up of many layers of special material which also protects the astronaut from the heat and cold. The spacesuit has a built-in toilet which collects his wee while the astronaut is inside the spacesuit. Some spacesuits have a rocket powered backpack attached, which allows the astronaut who is wearing it to fly around in space.
Fascinating information Harry!
The surface of the moon was just like a desert, with nothing to see but rocks, and sand like material. No trees, grass, water or life forms could be seen.
Could man ever live on the moon? How would he survive with no oxygen, water or way to grow food? Would we have to live with some sort of protective shield to protect us from the atmosphere?
As I placed the USA flag onto the sandy rocks, I knew that I was making history by being the first man on the moon, would any others follow me on this journey?
Some interesting thoughts Luke.
This astronaut is American and works for NASA space team. The reason I think this is because I saw the NASA symbol on the astronaut’s shoulder. I think it’s a man (but it could also be a woman!). It looks like the Moon because I can’t think of another planet that’s white! I think they are filming the eclipse because there’s a light shining on them, or it could be the light from the camera! The reason why I said ‘they’ is because there’s a shadow in the bottom left hand corner which means there is probably someone holding the camera!
Some good detective work Harry! But remember that the moon is not a planet.
I had got out of my rocket and started walking. Suddenly a big boom struck the moon! I turned round to see a massive spacecraft with hundreds and hundreds of people crowded into it. I put down my detector and headed towards the spacecraft. What are you doing here? I said to them. One of the members of the crowd stepped out of the craft and explained to me that they all were on an expedition to be the first ones to find a living creature on the moon. We finished talking. We all knew the race was on!
As the NASA Astronaut stepped onto the rocket the more he walked onto the rocket the more scared he felt. He sat in the chair with all his body wobbling. Tony did not want to do this as he might run out fuel for the rocket 5..4..3..2..1.. and we have lift off. It took quite a long time for Tony to get to the moon. When he arrived he took his countries flag and stuck it into the moon’s surface, and history was made. He always remembered that moment and was thankful for the opportunity to visit the moon!!
I had arrived on the moon and I was the first person on it. I was filled with joy as I proudly landed the American flag.
I was exploring the planet when I saw something very, very crazy it was a floating family of aliens! They looked like jelly-babies. Then they waved at me and so I waved back. Next, I showed them round my space-rocket, there was no point because they didn’t know what any of it was. They showed me where they lived. I couldn’t wait to tell my earth friends about my new friends from another planet!
