Jason and the Argonauts.

This term we are writing character descriptions and creating our own adventure stories inspired by Jason and the Argonauts. We chose this story because Jason is brave and resourceful and overcomes many obstacles. Jason is not a superhero but he is resourceful and resilient – two qualities we want to promote in our classes.

The story fits well with our topic of ‘Earth and Space’. We’ll be learning about the Solar System and investigating light and shadow. Some of us are looking forward to making our own planets. We have investigated how much we’d weigh on different planets due to the different gravity. Our weight changes but our mass doesn’t.

For homework, we have some interesting science investigations to carry out at home. We have also prepared spelling and times table fun packs which children can take home to share. There’s a lot to do!
