Dear Major Peake,

I want to apply to go to space because I have good teamwork because when I finish year 4 I have 100% for a good teamwork. I want to see the views of the planets and to step onto the planet because if I want to be an astronaut I have to step on to the planet.

I have a good memory to explore the planet. I will not forget the things I have to do in the rocket. I am healthy so I can control the rocket better. I know you might think that I am small for that but I can do it because I am healthy. Finally to sum up my last words  to my family and to flash into space.

Yours sincerely
