This term our topic is EXPLORERS. Can you remember what an explorer is? We will be looking at famous explorers from the past in history. In geography we are going to explore a new town from a contrasting location. In English we are going to explore the moon by reading ‘The man on the moon.’ To complement this in DT we will be designing and making our very own space vehicles! How exciting! Lets get ready to explore! 

We were very lucky to go into the Stardome Planetarium in our hall! We looked at different constellations and we searched for Big Bear! Big Bear must’ve been hungry as he decided to steal apples from our classroom!

Last term our topic was called Healthy Humans and we have been learning all about how to keep our bodies healthy. We have been exercising, discovering different types of food and are having a visit from a dentist to learn about healthy teeth! We also did an investigation into whether germs exist and we proved it by placing our dirty hands on some bread! It was not a pretty sight! 

In English we have been reading lots of traditional tales and we created our own stories based on Cinderella. There were lots of twists including messages being delivered by email!
