 Homework is due in on Wednesday mornings - see your teacher if you have lost your homework book or need help with this term's homework grid.

 Please hand in your reading book and reading record every morning. Remember that you need to read to an adult and get them to sign or initial your reading record book in order for you to progress on the reading race track and win your certificates and prizes!

Our topic for terms 1 and 2 is space. We will be learning about the geography of our planet, the other planets in our solar system and various aspects of science in space. We will also learn about the history and significance of the space race. 

We have just been on our school trip to the Science Museum in London and we had an amazing time- it was 'out of this world'!

We learned lots in the space section about the moon landing, what astronauts wear and the food they eat in space.

We also went to see science shows about electricity (Live Wire) and explosions (Flash! Bang! Wallop!) We then spent some time in the Wonderlab which was full of amazing science experiments and activities to take part in.

We are really proud of our paintings of the planets- we have been working really hard on using different shades. We could only use the primary colours, white and black to make these so we had to mix our own shades. Here are Jade and Jenson showing theirs off. There are lots more to look at in the gallery- have a look!
