Autumn Term: 

Autumn Term is all about being healthy and happy :-) 

Our new project will focus on 3 strands of wellbeing: exercise, eating and relaxation and we will be hosting a health and wellbeing festival later on in the year for our parents to enjoy.

During the next 11 weeks, we are getting active through Zumba, HIIT training and netball as well as carrying out a series of investigations about how important exercise is. Our visit to Over Farm Market will teach us all about where foods come from and we will be picking our own fresh vegetables to come back and cook with at school. We will be making, trialling, costing and evaluating a range of healthy products before deciding exactly what to serve up at our festival. Healthy minds are as important as healthy bodies; therefore, we will be learning different strategies for calming and meditation. Take a look at our project overview for even more details. 


Spring Term:

Our Spring Term is all about Space! As part of our project to plan, prepare and deliver our own Science Fayre to our parents, we are learning all things ‘Out Of This World’. Our journey starts on the ground with how to take off. This will include completing gravity and air resistance investigations as well as learning about the space race. Our second section focuses on the journey through space where we will learn all about our incredible solar system. Finally, we will touch down on the moon and investigate solids, liquids and gases as well as making our very own moon catapult. We also have an exciting trip to the National Space Station where we will enjoy a planetarium viewing.
