Term 5 and 6 enquiry ‘What’s the impact of space exploration?’

This will be a science based enquiry

In Term 5 and 6 you will learn all about Earth and Space. This will include learning such as: describing the movement of the Earth and other planets relative to the sun in the solar system and the history of space travel.

Home Learning

As part of our Term 5/6 enquiry, ‘What’s the impact of space exploration?’ we would like you to design/ create/ or research into an area of your interest. These are to be brought in by the end of term 6. We will share your master pieces with our class. I look forward to seeing what creative and inventive ideas you come up with.
