Splendid Skies 

Splendid Skies is our new topic. We have thought really carefully about what we would like to learn and find out more about during this topic. We know a lot about the weather and the seasons but are unsure about how and why the seasons change, so this will be the first thing we will be learning. 

Another area which we have spoken about it what flies in the sky. We already know that birds fly, as well as helicopters, aeroplanes, hot air balloons and Santa in his sleigh from the North pole. We want to know about magic carpets and rockets. We hope to build one! 

The final part of our topic will be 'Space'. We have some ideas about what is out there in 'Outer Space' but are not quite sure on the names of all of the planets. Ask us in a few weeks and we will be able to tell you lots of information about them!
