Trips & Events
Linked to our science topic, Earth and Space, we will be looking into the 8 planets and all things to do with the Solar System. As such, a trip to the National Space Centre in March has been organised. Not only will this be a great opportunity for the children to explore space up close and personal, it will be a great learning opportunity to find out more information.
