Sycamore Class Autumn 2017 This term we are going to be extremely busy with some more new and exciting topics.
School Life by Thomas Doherty
Our Topics this term are.... Alchemy Island will be done in Spring 2. We are currently doing 'A Child's War... Autumn 1 Stargazers Journey through space, the final frontier... Navigate beyond the Sun, the magnificent, blazing star at the centre of our solar system!
Investigate the eight planets - Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Take a look at the Moon, a celestial body that orbits Earth.
Exploring space is probably the greatest adventure that humankind has ever undertaken. Are we alone or is there other life forms out there?
Autumn 2 and Spring 1 A Child's WarA siren sounds, a building crumbles, a Spitfire zooms overhead. Take cover! It’s 1939 and Britain is at war. Deep down in the Anderson shelter, learn why nations are fighting and why child evacuees must make the long journey from their homes and families into unknown territory.
And, as peace is declared, let’s get ready to celebrate. Mr Churchill says ‘It’s an unconditional surrender!’. Spring 2 Alchemy Island It’s time to suspend your disbelief and open your mind. We’re going on a magical journey to Alchemy Island!
You’ve got your map, co-ordinates and everything else you need to make your way across Alchemy Island. Don’t forget to pack your imagination!
Got your suitcase ready? Then let the journey begin...
