We will use this book to explore space. We are going to look at Neil Armstrong and his mission to the moon. We are going to be asking ourselves- what is space? We will be looking at rockets, planets and missions to other planets.


In Design and Technology, we will be designing and building our own space rockets! We are also going to be making some tasty fruit rockets. In art, we are going to be painting some beautiful constellation pictures. Also, we are going to be exploring what we might see in space and we are going to draw and chalk our ideas


Alongside our class book, we will also be looking at extracts from other books including: ‘You Choose in Space’ by Pippa Goodhart,Look Inside Space’ By Rob Lloyd Jones  And ‘Man on the Moon: a day in the life of Bob’ by Simon Bartram.
