We've also been lucky enough to try some delicious Jamaican Ginger cake brought in by the children. Here is our curriculum map and knowledge organiser for the term.

In term 1, our topic was Ancient Greece.
As part of our Space work in science, on Tuesday 10th September we had a visit from Paul Hill from from Sirius Astronomy. He taught us about the history of space travel, the first earthlings on the moon, how space rockets launch and how the astronauts are kept safe on re-entry. We took part in some exciting experiments too.
Look at our beautiful space themed art work!
We've already seen some amazing teambuilding using marshmallows and spaghetti in our first few days back. We have been impressed by the children's enthusiastic approach to starting our new topics of Space and Ancient Greece. We've started to explore the story of Odyseus already.
