Our topic for Spring Term 1 is: To the Stars!



In this exciting topic we will be exploring the solar system and beyond as we journey into the stars!

We will be learning about Earth and space in science which will support our wider topic learning in space exploration, the history of space travel and planning our own mission.


We will be sharing "The Star Outside my Window" by  as our class novel.

'I've always wanted to be a Star Hunter. But I don't want to be the kind that looks for old stars that have already been burning for millions of years. I want to find the brand new ones - the ones that have only just been born and are searching for the people they've left behind...'

Following the disappearance of her mum, 10-year-old Aniyah suddenly finds herself living in foster care. With her life in disarray, she knows just one thing for sure: her mum isn't gone for ever. Because people with the brightest hearts never truly leave. They become stars.

So when a new star is spotted acting strangely in the sky, Aniyah is sure it's her mum, and she embarks on the adventure of a lifetime to make sure everyone else knows too -- an adventure that involves breaking into the Royal Observatory of London, a mischievous scurry of squirrels and the biggest star in Hollywood...
