Spring – Reach for the Stars

This term is all about space! We will become explorers of our own solar system, learn about day and night and why the different seasons occur. Our learning will cover British and local astronaut Tim Peake and consider what it is like to live in space and even write a lost in space transmission! We'll think and write about the planets and use some amazing literature, science fiction and music to inspire our own writing and artwork. In French, we will create solar system booklets.

Questions we'll be asking:

Have you ever seen a shooting star?

Do you know what it is made of?

How does night and day happen?

What causes the seasons?

What is a leap year?
