Autumn 1: Mission to Mars
In Year 5/6, we have been focusing on our new topic - Mission to Mars! In this topic, we will be building on our scientific skills and exploring the solar system - identifying the planets within and exploring their orbits and rotation. As we delve deeper into space, the children will explore Neil Armstrong and the first moon landing in detail. This topic provides children with the opportunity to develop their own lines of enquiry and answer their own questions about space. Through our English sessions, the children will be creating a variety of texts to inform others about the wonders of our solar system.
