Please take a look at what we have planned for the children over the Autumn term. 

Our term will start with exploring the wonders of space, life as an astronaut and how we get day and night and the seasons. We will be exploring some space-themed stories, designing our own unique planets and creating some excellent space-themed artwork. We will also be investigating The Americas by testing or atlas skills, learning about the 50 states of the USA, investigating and comparing climates across the two continents and exploring why Florida is the perfect place to launch space shuttles from.

In the second half term, our focus will shift towards investigating the Benin Kingdom. We will explore when this civilisation started and ended.  Alongside this, we will be looking at tales set in Benin, and investigating the culture and what life was like in this historic kingdom.
