Term 1

This term, we are learning about Earth and Space.

We began the topic by taking part in space missions. We used clay to make lunar landscapes and decoded messages which instructed us to design our own space bases. We drew blueprints of our own space base and presented our ideas to each other.

This term, we visited Betteshanger Park to take part in some outdoor and adventurous activities. We learned lots of new skills and learned to ride bikes, shoot arrows in archery and use compasses when geocaching. We had an amazing time and demonstrated determination and positivity throughout the entire day.

Here are some examples of our amazing home learning this term.

We had to create a 3D model or draw a diagram of a planet in our solar system. As you can see, we have researched our chosen planet in detail and used our creative skills to design a model or a poster.
