'From the seeds of hard work grows a tree of success'

Welcome to Year 1

Moon Zoom!


This term our topic is ‘Moon Zoom’. We will be learning about space exploration and what it is like on the Moon. We will sample space food and also learn about the planets and their names. We will be listening to interviews with Tim Peake and learning about astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin.
We will be reading three lovely books this term. We will start with “Beegu”, a beautiful story about a little alien whose space-ship has crashed on Earth. We will find out her impressions of our planet through her experiences with people she meets. Our second story is “Bob, Man on the Moon”. This book is very lively and is about a man called Bob who travels to the Moon every day to clean it up. There can’t be any aliens – can there? Our final book the the term is a firm favourite – “Aliens Love Underpants”. We will be laughing our pants off at the story and will also get the chance to decorate some of our own pants. Let’s hope the aliens don’t steal them from our washing line!
