Term 3


Our big question for term 3 is

'What else is out there?'

Our term has begun with a very mysterious crash landing in the front playground.  Was it a spaceship?  Was it a satellite?  Was there another life form inside that has come to visit?  We will be exploring the space debris and making our own explanations of what happened. In this topic we will also find out about space and our solar system.  We will be thinking about planet Earth and what makes it so special.  We will discover fun facts about the eight planets in our galaxy.

Check out this catchy tune to help you remember the planets!


Below is our termly topic map as well as our 'chilli challenge' vocabulary. If you have any questions, special skills or interesting subject knowledge linked to any of our topics please let us know; we would love to invite you in.

Mild chilli words are words that your children should know the meaning of and use them in everyday conversation.

Hot chilli words are words that your children may have heard but perhaps don't yet fully understand their meaning. They are words that would be in an adults everyday vocabulary.

Spicy chilli words are very topic specific and may require discrete teaching. It is our aim that your child will be able to use them correctly and in context by the end of the topic.
