To start our learning we conducted a mummification. Don't panic - it wasn't on a human, instead we used oranges. The children came away with the understanding of the process, the purpose and above all they had an engaging experience to hook them into the topic. Each class came up with numerous questions which we will to answer throughout the rest of the term.
We went to space! We did this by using the schools Virtual Reality Goggles. In using these we were able to get up close to all eight planets and the Sun, without even leaving the classroom! We were able to uncover facts we didn't know, order the planets and above all have an amazing experience.
