Topic for this half term:


Any further details about this term’s topic:

Journey through space, the final frontier. Navigate beyond the Sun, the magnificent, blazing star at the centre of our Solar System. Investigate the eight planets: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Take a look at the Moon, a celestial body that orbits Earth. Programme a rover to traverse a lunar landscape and work scientifically to investigate gravity, and what happens when there is none. Get in a spin making simple models of the Solar System and listen to the haunting sounds of space themed music. Then it’s 3, 2, 1, blast off. Build and launch a rocket for an important test mission. Exploring space is probably the greatest adventure that humankind has ever undertaken. Are we alone? Or are there other life forms out there? And can humans survive in space?

Children will need to wear a PE kit to school every Tuesday. Mrs J Davies and Mr S Oram both have their planning time on a Friday. 



The next topic for this term:

 Fallen Fields

Details about next half- term’s topic:

Fallen Fields

The Sun sets on the battlefields of France and a solitary bugle sounds the Last Post.

Known as 'the war to end all wars' the First World War was a conflict that had a devastating effect on millions of people across the world.

What started this global tragedy? What was life like for families on the home front as they waited for news of loved ones who were 'missing in action'? How did the soldiers endure the terrible conditions in the trenches? How was a fragile peace finally achieved?

We will always remember the fallen.

More information will be added once the children have had their EPIC session - Everyone Planning In Class. If you have anything you feel you could contribute, please see one of the teachers.
