Moon Landing Historic Newspaper Reports

About This Primary Resource

The pdf contains three pages of newspaper reports from the Daily Mirror on July 21st 1969, the day after Apollo 11 landed on the Moon’s surface. These historical reports are a wonderful record of one of man’s greatest accomplishments. Includes a short profile of the three astronauts that took part in the Apollo 11 mission: Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins. They would make for a wonderful display in your school and could be used as part of a lunar / space themed lesson plan or activity.

This resource was provided by Historic-Newspapers.co.uk, the world's largest private archive of old newspapers and newspaper books. They provide a wonderful service, enabling you to find back issues by date and time as well as offering many gift options, such as date of birth newspaper gift packs.

The bright colours and clear images are brilliant for my SEN pupils. For a lot of the children routines are really important, so the visual timetable in particular has been a big hit.

I am new to EYFS and all the planning documents on this site have been really helpful, especially all the templates.

All of the story resources have been put to good use in our library corner, especially during World Book Day. Keep up the good work!

As an NQT this site has been a lifesaver. The resources have saved me loads of time and the forest school activities have been particularly useful. Thanks!
