FOR P3 - P5 PUPILS
Up to Speed is a funny, moving and captivating tale about a boy and a girl and what it’s like to be the odd one out. Have you ever met a person who is a little unusual? Someone whose mind seems to work a bit differently? Who surprises you? Who is funny and also fun to laugh at? That’s what Barnaby is like. Jade has marvelled and laughed at him, been surprised and confused by him. But he has also made her feel small. And she knows exactly how to get him back…
Up to Speed provides opportunities for provoking discussion and learning around topics involving the past, the future, space, science and technology. The themes covered are all suitable and linked with our interdisciplinary studies on space.
