Spring Term 2018

Welcome back and a Happy New Year! We can’t quite believe that we are already into the Spring term – the time of year when we are thinking about setting and achieving even bigger challenges. Fortunately, the children have returned ready and raring to go!

     This half term promises to be ‘out of this world’ as our learning journey leads us through space. Planet Earth will be the first stop as we take on the role of geographers. The children will develop their knowledge of the UK by exploring its landmarks and physical features through aerial photography. As we prepare to travel further into the solar system, we will learn about the history of space exploration, with a particular focus on the adventures of Neil Armstrong and Tim Peake. Of course, if we are going to get to space ourselves, we’ll need a space exploration vehicle – a great opportunity to put our DT skills to the test! In science, we will investigate the properties of a range of materials to prepare us for this ‘alien’ environment. When we are safely back on Earth, our RE theme will focus on Judaism, looking at the significance of Shabbat of and the customs and traditions associated with it. What an eventful term ahead!
