“One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” were the famous words of Neil Armstrong. We will find out about the life of the first man on the moon and what his mission to space was like.

 

Throughout our topic sessions, we will create our own non-fiction fact file about Neil Armstrong. We will find out about the unusual animals that were sent to space before the Apollo 11 moon mission. We will use papier-mâché to create the surface of the moon, being careful to make craters. We will then make models to learn about the earth and it's journey as it orbits the sun, and the moon moves around the earth.

 

To continue our mission to find out about famous people from the past, we will take a trip to Portsmouth Dockyard to be transported back 500 years to the time of Christopher Columbus. We will learn about his adventures and his brave trip across the seas!

To link to the topic we will study the paintings of seascapes by Vincent Van Gogh and recreate these using oil pastels. To end our fabulous topic we will come into school dressed up as either an explorer or an astronaut.
