On this page you will find information about our science topics this year.  This half term's theme is 'Earth and Space'.

In each theme, you will also find suggestions for home learning opportunities and we would love to see any outcomes from any exploration completed outside of school! Or, maybe, you might have some interesting facts to share or activities/links to suggest.
