Term 6 - Space

Willow Trees' next topic is going to be OUT OF THIS WORLD!

We're heading into space, exploring the planets in our solar system, the sun and the moon. This will all be brought to life through an amazing VR space workshop! Children will dress up in their best space outfits, create their own papier-mâché planets and learn some amazing facts about space. During this topic, they will also explore a range of historical sources to understand the lives and significance of Katherine Johnson and Neil Armstrong, comparing the two individuals and creating facts files! To finish the topic, children will appraise Holst's Planets before designing a brand new planet and creating a piece of music to reflect it!



Take a look at our Knowledge Organiser for this term!

In maths, we have been exploring volume and capacity!

We analysed historical sources to find out information about Neil Armstrong and Katherine Johnson!

Look at Willow Trees’ amazing solar system! Can you tell which is which?

We made and painted papier-mâché planets! 🪐 🌍 We mixed our own colours and thought carefully about tones, shades and tints!


On 14.6.22, KS1 had a space themed day! We dressed up in our best space themed costumes…didn’t we all look amazing?! So much effort went in to making these amazing outfits and props!

We had a jam packed day, making papier mache planets, taking part on a VR space workshop, creating planet fact files and making space art pieces.
