    Learning Experience - Out of this World

    Learning Experience – Literacy and Science

    Our new learning experience is called Out of this World. The children will become authors of their own Space adventure stories, using the book ‘The Way Back Home’ by Oliver Jeffers as their inspiration. Alongside this, they will enjoy a special visit from a planetarium experience at school and learn about our Solar System. The children will also find out about and produce group fact files about inspirational astronauts and scientists from recent history, for example Neil Armstrong and Tim Peake.

    Home Learning Choices (complete at least one task before Friday 1st February).

    • Research a space journey or moon landing and bring your project in to share with the class.
    • A poster about our Solar System or a particular planet.
    • A space quiz to test the rest of the class.
    • A space/solar system/rocket model.
    • Write a story about a space adventure to share with the class.
