In English will be finding out facts about space on the internet. Big Potters will make a fact file about animals that have gone into space. Little potters will be sorting animals that have and haven’t been into space.
In Science we will be finding out about the importance of recycling plastic and the effect it is having on our environment.
In Topic we will be evaluating how the ‘space race’ was such a significant event and how it has shaped the future for space travel.
In RE we will be thinking about the message in the story ‘The Boy Who Threw Stones at Trees’. We will be generating thoughts on why we should look after trees in our environment.

Please support our Maths theme at home this week; identifying numbers 1-10 around your home and when you are out and about. You could have a go at writing the numbers too. Or make your own number line which you can muddle the sequence of and the children have to order the numbers.
