Year 2 Term 2

To Infinity and Beyond!

Our Topic this term is 'To infinity and beyond' where we will be exploring everything to do with Space.

We will be researching the Solar System and using this as a stimulus for fiction and non-fiction writing.

We will be using different sources of evidence to research ‘The Space Race’ that occurred between Russia and America to be the first country to land on the moon.

With the Earth as a focus we will also look at the physical and human features of our planet and use these to help us design a new planet.

We will be starting our topic with an exciting 'astronaut training' day.

Class 9 enjoyed their astronaut training on impact day. We performed space music, exciting exercises, found out information about Tim Peake and created parachutes. Look at all our amazing learning...
