Autumn Term 

This term's topics are "Earth and space" and "Famous Astronauts study" so we will be looking at a variety of subjects based around the solar system and also looking at the Space Race and all of the key moments in space travel in the last 60 years, including thinking about the future of space travel

We have The Learning Dome coming to see us on 1st November to talk to us about planets. 

We also have Mr Walker from the Wider Opportunities program coming in to teach the children to play guitar

Mr Walker has recommended that all children log onto Kids Guitar Zone, which has lots of free lessons so they can practice at home even without a guitar! Here is the link http://www.kidsguitarzone.com/
