A place to belong - A place to grow

Term 1 - Stargazers

♦ Term 1 Learning ♦ 




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. Compare the times of day at different places on the 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 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?



In Term 1 our class reading book will be: Cosmic



In Term 1, we will be focusing on place value, addition, subtraction and statistics. We will then have a few weeks at the end to consolidate and fill in any gaps due to lockdown.



P.E this term will be on a Wednesday and a Thursday.
