This term our topic is...
We will be working towards answering the question: Who won the 'Space Race'?
Starting with a bang - the children will be putting a plan together for a Moon Camp for 2 astronauts to live comfortably. Then after completing some activities and investigations, the children will make these better at the end of term and use 3D modelling software (which we'll be learning to use in Computing lessons) to create a representation.
We will look at and assess various sources to analyse the facts and impact that various key events in space travel in order to make a personal choice on who won the space race, giving reasons by writing a news paper report. Key events we'll be looking at are:
- First rocket launched into space
- First animal which travelled into space
- First man to travel into space
- The moon landing.
