We loved our trip to the Science Museum in London! We had great fun learning about space exploration, space food and drink, space suits, the first rockets and a full size replica of the moon landing module.

We even saw a piece of real moon rock! It turns out the moon isn't made from cheese after all!

The Wonderlab was great fun too- we learned about lots of different aspects of science, having a go at a range of practical activities. Miss Lawes (and the children) loved the friction slides!

Check out this amazing photo of Cerys investigating how light is reflected in a series of mirrors:

There are plenty more photos from our Science Museum trip in the gallery below.

 We have really enjoyed learning about our own planet Earth and we have done lots of map work from small scale (our own town) to world maps. 

In term 2 we are now looking at our Solar System and how Earth is part of a group of planets which orbit around the sun. We are constantly amazed at how our Solar System works and how everything is in exactly the right place. We are the Goldilocks planet- not too hot, not too cold, just right!!

We will also be learning about why we get night and day as well as the history of space travel and the great space race in the 1960s.

We are looking forward to learning about the Romans next term.

 Take a look at our photo gallery below. We will be adding more photos during the year.
