In History we will be finding out why Neil Armstrong is famous and then comparing him to the explorer Christopher Columbus. As part of Art and Design we will use printing techniques to create a piece of art inspired by the moon.

In PE we will continue our learning about Neil Armstrong by finding out how he got fit and healthy in order to go to space. We will complete circuit training so that we can be astronauts too!
