Our current learning experience is..

Space - Above and Beyond

During this learing experience, we will look above the clouds into orbit to see what mysterious forces are out there. We will look primarily at the Earth, Sun and Moon and how we are able to see certain things from the surface of our planet, how we have night and day and how big our planet is. We will also study the moon in great detail before moving farther out into the solar system via our "rocket mission through Samba" to look at some of the planets in our solar system.

On our journey we plan to investigate things like astronauts, gravity, aliens and what the future holds in space.

Underlying all this are texts by astronaut Buzz Aldrin. and the novel 'Cosmic' by Frank Cotterell Boyce. We will read these to get a flavour of what it would be like to become an astronaut.

Literacy Experience Day...Blast Off!

As part of our space topic and literacy work using Cosmic by Frank Cotterll-Boyce, we had an experience day watching rockets take off, smelling the smoke and fire and creating a fantastic word mat using a thesaurus.
