Term 1

This term in Science, we will be learning all about Earth and Space. Children will be taught to:


  • Describe the movement of the Earth, and other planets, relative to the Sun in the solar system.
  • Describe the movement of the Moon relative to the Earth.
  • Describe the Sun, Earth and Moon as approximately spherical bodies.
  • Use the idea of the Earth’s rotation to explain day and night and the apparent movement of the Sun across the sky.


As part of the topic, we will be visited by the Astronomy Road Show. A large, inflatable planetarium will fill the main hall, and the children will be immersed in the wonders of our solar system and the universe.


In English, our focus text will be Cosmic. It is a rich and humorous text, which is linked to our Earth and Space topic, and provides lots of exciting opportunities for writing.


We will try to upload pictures as much as we can.
