Welcome to the Jupiter Class page
Autumn Term (2nd half term) 2018 – Moon Zoom
The countdown has begun. Are you ready for blast off?
This half term, we’ll travel through space to learn about the Solar System. We’ll investigate an alien crash site, write an incident report and try to find the aliens who have landed. Where could they be? We’ll design spaceships, space buggies and space-related toys. Books and photographs will help us to learn about the first lunar landing and the astronauts who venture into space. We’ll also explore satellite images, investigate rockets and use ICT to communicate our ideas and present our work.
At the end of our project, we’ll share our learning with our parent curriculum session on Wednesday 12th December, hope to see you there.
Help your child prepare for their project
There’s so much to learn about space! Why not stay up late and look at the stars? A stargazing app could help you identify well-known constellations. You could also visit the local library and find some exciting space stories and information books to share. Alternatively, create extraordinary aliens using modelling clay or a drawing app. Watch the videos below with your child to learn about space and The Solar System.
