 Our Learning Project this term is...

Peasants, Princes & Pestilence

Flee your fields, close your doors and pull up the drawbridge: the dreaded and deathly 'Great Pestilence' is here! Mount your steed and gallop through the dark and deadly world of 14th century Britain, sword and shield at the ready, pledging your allegiance to king and country! Rouse your troops with promises of bloody battle and violent jousts. Read and write historical accounts, poems and tales and discover the grotesque effects of bugs and bacteria on the human body. And if you smell a rat, my friend - get out of there!

Term 2... 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?
