Stephenson Class have enjoyed the 'Out of this World' topic and we have made links across the whole curriculum.
In literacy they have been exploring poetry, where they have created limericks about space. They have explored rhyming words, personification, metaphors, similes and ...onomatopoeia they linked this to music where they looked at the music and story of War of the Worlds. This lead to the question of "are we alone?" They also looked at the song Thunder Child and linked this to literacy. Thomas also used his time in ICT club to create a fabulous PowerPoint of al the instruments he could hear when listening to the music. They created a mnemonic to help them remember the order of the planets in the solar system. The young people in Stephenson class created their own solar system and have learnt many facts about the solar system and space. They built their very own space shuttle and looked at which countries made it to the moon. Overall Stephenson class have thoroughly enjoyed investigating and learning about is there anything else out there?
