Welcome to Class 4!


Mr Ferguson and Mrs Marron welcome you to Class 4.
This half term our topic is called:

 

Stargazers

 

Journey through space, the final frontier. Navigate beyond the Sun, the magnificent blazing star at the centre of our solar system!

Investigate the eight planets- Mercury, Venus, Earth. Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Take a look at the moon; a celestial body that orbits Earth.

Design a buggy to explore one of the planets and programme it to traverse an alien landscape.
