Those of you teaching Man’s First Moonlanding at KS1 but like to know that there is a cute fiction title you might want to use called They Raced to the Moon, written by F.J.Beerling and published by Fairyfaye at £5.99. It deals with serious issues such as US-Soviet rivalry but in an amusing and age appropriate way, using rhyme and numerous animals to help. Indeed it is probably one of few story books that deal with the lead-up to the 1969 landing, making it therefore more challenging for you Y2 pupils. After the story there is a useful Did you know? section which many children will love.
