In our Stargazers topic, we will journey through space! Navigating beyond the Sun, the magnificent, blazing star at the centre of our Solar System, to investigate the eight planets: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.

We will learn about the Moon, a celestial body that orbits Earth.

Programme a rover to traverse a lunar landscape and work scientifically to investigate gravity, and what happens when there is none.

We get in a spin making simple models of the Solar System and listen to the haunting sounds of space themed songs. Then it’s 3, 2, 1, blast off! As we build and launch a rocket for an important test mission. Exploring space is probably the greatest adventure that humankind has ever undertaken. Are we alone? Or are there other life forms out there?
