Autumn Term 2022

Welcome to your first term in Class 2. I hope that you have had the best summer holidays and I cannot wait to hear all of the stories. I am thrilled to be your teacher this year and hope you are excited to get stuck into all of the fun activities we have planned this term. Take a look below at some of the things we will be learning about this term.


This term, our big question is:

What does it mean to be a great explorer? 


I am excited to say that this term we are going to learn about famous explorers and the adventures they went on.

One of our main focuses this half term is going to be space and space explorers. We are going to learning about the exciting explorations they went on. 

In addition to this, we have planned to take KS1 the National Space Centre.  

To help you get a head start on our topic this term, I have put some helpful websites below.

During this topic we will be learning about the astronaut Neil Armstrong and his mission to travel to the moon.

Another famous figure we are going to be learning about is Christopher Columbus and where in the world he travelled.
