Welcome to Galaxy and Jupiter!

The teachers working within Galaxy and Jupiter are Mrs Walker, Mrs Cray


Autumn Term 'Dungeons and Dragons'.

We are really excited to visit Bolsover castle for our first school trip on the 17th September. We will be looking at the history and features of the castle and will discover who lived and worked there. During the first half term we will be focusing on castles and dungeons. We will be comparing Bolsover's ruins to currently used castles. Through our science investigations we will be exploring the properties of different materials and identifying which materials are best for different uses in the castle. Within art and design we are going to be designing and creating our own model castles and shields. In the second half term dragons will be our focus where we will be researching different animals which contain the word dragon in their name through a large variety of texts (For example Komodo dragons, Leafy Sea Dragons and Dragon flies). The children will be creating their own information fact files which will be displayed in our reading areas.


Our topic for spring term is 'Sail the Seven Seas'.

Throughout the summer term our topic will be 'The world in our fridge'.

Please see the learning journeys attached for more information.
