Our topic this term: 



Journey through space, the final frontier… Navigate beyond the sun, the magnificent, blazing star at the centre of our solar system!

Investigate the eight planets – Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Take a look at the moon, a celestial body that orbits the Earth.

Programme a ‘rover’ to traverse a lunar landscape and work scientifically to investigate gravity… and what happens when there is none! Compare the time of day at different places on the Earth and use GPS satellite navigation systems to track hidden treasure! Get in a spin, making simple models of the solar system and listen to the haunting sound of space-themed songs.

Then it’s three, two, one… BLAST OFF! Build and test a rocket for an important test mission.

Exploring space is probably the greatest adventure that humankind has ever undertaken. Are we alone or is there other life forms out there?
