Autumn Term 2023 Learning

In Science we are learning about Earth and Space and finding out about our solar system and the cycles of the moon.

In writing, we are using the narrative One Small Step before moving onto a journal of a transmission from Mars.  This will be followed by the myth Theseus and the Minotaur which links to our history learning of the Ancient Greeks.
