What's happening this term?
We are very excited about our topic ‘Moon Zoom’ this half term as we travel through space to learn about the Solar System. We’ll investigate an alien crash site, make a missing poster and try to find the aliens who have landed. Where could they be? We’ll make models of the Solar System and design and make our own spaceships and space buggies.
Books and photographs will help us to learn about the first lunar landing and the astronauts who venture into space. We will develop our creative skills by using clay to make models of aliens and compose space sounds using musical instruments. We will also explore satellite images, investigate rockets and use ICT to communicate our ideas and present our work. It will be out of this world!
In RE we will be learning about the Islamic festival ‘Milad un Nabi’. We will look at the importance of birthday celebrations and why babies are so special. We will learn the story of Muhammad and Khadijah, looking at the difference between right and wrong. We will also look at Islamic art and sacred places along with learning the importance of respecting other peoples beliefs.
This term in PE we will be working with a specialist cricket coach to develop our throwing and catching and team work skills.
