Space Centre trip-25th September,2017

Dear Parents,

Your children have had a fun packed day today. They have been in the Uk's largest planetarium, on a unique 3D simulator experience and have had further learning on the relationship between the Sun, Earth and Moon. We hope that they have come home excited to tell you about their day!

Week commencing 18th September,2017

Our topic this half term will be Space. You should have received a parent mail today informing you of a trip to the Space Centre in Leicester on Septem…
