Our topic this term is 'To Infinity and Beyond' and focuses on the science of night and day, the orbit of the Earth and Moon, the phases of the Moon and the history of the space race. We will also explore the Solar System and investigate changing shadows. We are looking forward to a visit to the National Space Centre to enhance our learning.

Our super start involved discovering a mystery incident had occurred on the playground with curious objects appearing overnight.
