Our science topic this half term is Earth and Space and we will be looking at the movement of the Earth and other planets relative to the sun. We will study the solar system adn use secondary sources to find evidence to support or refute scientific ideas. We will look at the Earth's rotation and how this links to day and night. Throughout the topic we will work to develop our use of scientific vocabulary and use of scientific formats to record work.
Our work in Science will link with our humanities topic where we continue to study the Mayans, who were avid astronomers.
