Mars by Year 5

Children in Tamar Class have been finding out about Mars after listening to the 1938 radio broadcast of The War of the Worlds by Orson Welles.

We discussed the possibility of life existing on Mars and decided that Mars’ thin atmosphere, lack of oxygen and liquid water would make it inhabitable for civilised life to exist there.

Nevertheless, we will continue to study people’s fascination of Martian invaders by studying the novel that sparked it all off in 1897: The War of the Worlds by HG Wells.
