A Mini Project About … SPACE!
From Monday 29th June, our children in school will be spending the fortnight learning about Space and so we would also like our home learners to discover the same interesting facts. Here are a list of lesson ideas for different subjects within the curriculum. Choose one or two a day and see what you can discover, create and learn. This work will be completed over the next two weeks in school, so please take your time and do not feel that you have to complete all of it at home, as we know you are also accessing other work through White Rose Maths and BBC Bitesize. Please send us examples of your amazing work. We would love to have a 'Space Gallery' on our class page. Remember that most of the worksheets do not need printing - you can read them online and then write on your own paper or answer any questions verbally.
