Journey through space, the final frontier...
Navigate beyond the Sun: the magnificent, blazing star at the centre of our Solar System!
Investigate the eight plants - 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! Compare the time of day at different places on Earth and use GPS satellite navigation systems to track hidden treasure! Get in a spin making simple models of the Solar System and listen to the haunting sounds of space-themed songs.
Then it's three, two, one... 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?
Topic homework has been given out for this half term. All children should complete two pieces of homework and have a choice between English, creative and science based activities. Please ensure the two pieces you complete are from two separate columns. These pieces of homework should have some time and effort put into them so that they can be displayed in our school. The children should be able to talk about what they have done for homework presentations. Spare homework sheets can be found in the classroom for those who may have lost their homework sheet.

Jack and the beanstalk!
On Tuesday 14th January we had a fabulous morning watching the panto 'Jack and the Beanstalk'. Here are some pictures from the Panto below, we all had a great time and even enjoyed watching some of the teachers take part!
This week we have been writing prologues, to do this we looked at the different prologues at the beginning of the Star Wars Movies - these gave us lots of inspiration to write our own prologue for a Star Wars Movie. The children should be very proud with what they achieved - take a look at some recorded below!
