Astronaut Academy Spring Term

Our topic for the spring term is called Astronaut Academy. The topic begins with a training programme to become astronauts through a series of lessons based around Space. The children are given the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in the life of an astronaut as they learn about the fitness, skills and knowledge that an astronaut would need. At the end of the topic, the children will attend a graduation ceremony where they will become astronauts. In our art sessions, we will be recreating the planets by using chalk, oil pastels, and water colours. They will also be designing and creating their own planets.

Mysterious Mummies Autumn Term
Ancient Egypt will inspire some very creative work.  The children will learn how a Pharaoh was mummified and the importance of the River Nile. In Art, they will experiment with mixing different shades of colour to create wonderful paintings of sunsets over the pyramids.  In Literacy, the children will read one of the world’s oldest fairy tales `The Egyptian Cinderella’. In Science, this term the two main topics are:  Humans and Animals, where the children will learn about the life cycle and skeletal system.  The second will be Light and Shadow, where we will look at light sources, how shadows are formed and how light travels through different materials.
