Information for Parents –Autumn term 2018



Topic for this term:

Moon Zoom and Capital Cardiff

Any further details about this term’s topic:

This half term our topic is Moon Zoom! CRASH! What’s in the playground? Let’s go outside and take a look.  Stand back everyone – it looks like we have a special outer space delivery! 

Find out who might have landed by exploring the package and investigating scattered scientific specimens. 

Would you like to be an astronaut?  You’ll need a pretty sturdy spacecraft if you do.  Start off small by making a rocket…WHOOSH! How far can you make it travel?

Find out the names of the planets and order them from the sun.

Then, an alien is found…can you help make him feel welcome?  Maybe you could arrange a party and celebrate his arrival. 


Next half term, we will be looking at Cardiff.  Where is it?  What can you do there? What special landmarks are there? What special events take place there? How is it different or the same to the place that you live?  Explore these questions and learn more about this important city, the capital of Wales.


Our role play areas will include – a Space Travel Agents and a Classroom Castle. We will be learning rhymes, songs and reading a variety of stories linked to our topics.                                                                            

Where possible we will fit our literacy, number, science, dance, IT, music and art into the topic too.

We will also be celebrating St David’s Day.
