Our Learning Project this term is.... Stargazers!

Journey through space, the final frontier… Navigate beyond the Sun: the magnificent, blazing star at the centre of our solar system!

Investigate the 8 planets – Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Take a look at the moon, a celestial body that orbits Earth.

Compare the time of day at different places on Earth and use GPS navigation systems to track hidden treasure! Get in a spin making simple models of the solar system and listen to the haunting sound of space-themed songs.

Then it’s three, two, one…. BLAST OFF! Build and launch a rocket for an important test mission.

Exploring space is probably the greatest adventure that humankind has ever undertaken. Are we alone or are there other forms of life out there?

This term our Learning Project is.... Off With Her Head!


What sort of man would order the beheading of his wife? Was she really that bad?

Travel back in time to the 1500 and meet the terrifying Tudors, a domineering dynasty that changed our history.

Discover an opulent court where dancing and singing goes hand in hand with swift falls from favour – and even swifter falling of heads!

Develop your painting skills in miniature, solve riddles and remember to protect your precious neck with a large white ruff – if you want to survive at Tudor court!

Flex your detective muscles and become a criminal investigator! Will you find out the facts, or will the evidence from the past bemuse you? How will you find the accused… Innocent or guilty?

It’s your turn to take part in one of the most famous trials the world has ever known!
