To boldly go

Areas of learning

  • As historians, we will be learning about the Aztecs and how their civilisation shaped modern Mexico.
  • As geographers, we will be learning about the different continents and the countries within them.
  • As scientists, we will be investigating how the digestive system works. Looking at teeth and how we can take care of them.
  • As artists, we will be designing, imagining and presenting new ideas of planets, landscapes and alien life forms.
  • As writers we will develop our ability to use adjectives and figurative language and similes to describe settings effectively, e.g., in science fiction. We will also develop our understanding of how to construct a story with suspense.
