Essential topics covered in 100 Facts Exploring Space: Planning and preparation for a space voyage Blast-off, travelling through deep space and reaching the target of orbit Space landers and robotic rovers Examples of 'I don't believe it' fascinating facts: The Cassini-Huygens mission to Saturn is the most expensive mission ever. It cost more than $3.3 billion - the price of 12 Airbus A380 super jumbo jets. The fastest spacecraft, and the fastest man-made object ever, was Helios 2. It neared the Sun at 42 miles per second! A craft entering Neptune's atmosphere would be met by the fastest winds in the Solar System - ten times stronger than a hurricane on Earth! Activities to make learning accessible and interactive include: Make a rocket using a cardboard tube, sheet of card, sticky tape and scissors Quiz question: Spacecraft have many devices, but rarely microphones to detect sound. Why? Create your own orbit using a sock, tennis ball and some string. See how long it takes to orbit the further you lengthen the string Author: Steve ParkerConsultant: Clint TwistPages: 48Age: 7+Dimensions: 9 X 12Format: Paperback with holographic foilISBN: 9781848104730"

New Primary Anglo Saxon fiction
Freedom for Bron
By: N. S. BLACKMAN
Slave boy Bron does his best to avoid the wrath – and the stick – of his master, the grumpy village blacksmith. But Bron’s life is dull and lacking in family or friendship. And he is always hungry. Then one day, a suprising Saxon lord arrives – passing through the village on his way to an important war council. It’s a chance for Bron to escape his lowly life and prove just how valuable one young lad can be – to the lord, to his village and ultimately, to the whole kingdom. A tale of friendship, divided loyalties and the desire to belong, this adventure will thrill young readers.
