Spring 2018: Astronaut Academy
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 the children 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.

Autumn 2017 - Mysterious Mummies . . .

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 fairytales `The Egyptian Cinderella’. In Science this term the two main topics are: Light and Shadow, in which the children will track their shadows across the course of a day, and Humans and Animals, where the children will learn more about their skeletons and the digestive system.
