  • Week 1 - The Moon
  • Week 2 - Astronauts
  • Week 3 - Rockets

  • Week 6 - The Planets

Our class books are 'Space Song Rocket Ride' by Sunny Scribens & 'Dr Maggie's Grand Tour of the Solar System' by Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock. 

In PHSE, we will continue focusing on personal hygiene and why we need to be aware of it. We will be continuing to teach the students personal grooming skills, such as cutting their nails, hair washing, using deodorant etc. Below is a video we watched to remind us how to clean our teeth. This work will go towards an AQA pre-entry award. 

We will continue to work towards our AQA pre-entry cooking award. This will involve cooking on a Thursday morning. We will let you know via the diary what students will be cooking and if they need to contribute to cooking ingredients.
