We will also learn about space travel through the ages. We will explore the geography of our planet using maps, globes and atlases. Science will also include learning about materials and their properties after half term. 
In ICT the children will be further developing their Scratch skills to create their own games. After half term, we will be exploring blogging. 
During RE lessons, we will be exploring Christianity and Judaism. After half term, our RE question will be 'Is the Bible a handbook?'.
