Welcome to Miss Radcliffe’s class.
This half term we are learning all about Space. Our curriculum challenge is “Will we ever send another human to the moon?”
As Scientists, we will be able to explain using evidence to support how we know the Earth, Moon and Sun are all spherical in shape. We will use pattern seeking and identifying to name all the planets based on their distance from the Sun and describe their properties. We will explain how all Planets orbit around the Sun and the Moon orbits around the Earth Discuss how the Earth orbits on an axis which not only causes night and day but also different seasons.
