Our topic this term is 'Flight and Space'.  We will be researching the Wright brothers and famous astronauts (Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin).  We will visit The Wetlands Centre in Llanelli and Techniquest.

The children will participate in a space workshop - Universe in the classroom, run by young astronomers and physicists.



We will be writing a recount, a report on a flying insect, instruction writing through our Design and Technology project - design and create a space rocket and we will be creating stories using 'Pie Corbett' methods.
