Autumn 1

Dinosaur Planet

Stomp, crash, RRRAGH! Watch out everyone – the dinosaurs are on the prowl! They’re rampaging across the dusty earth, swishing enormous tails and baring their fearsome teeth.

Let’s explore the Dinosaur Planets! Imagine you’re a palaeontologist (a scientist who studies bones and fossils). Dig deep and discover dazzling dinosaur facts.

Doyouthinkhesawus? Yes he did….RUN!

Autumn 2

Enchanted Woodland

If you go down to the woods today you’re sure of a BIG surprise!  Foxes and badgers, voles and mice, beady-eyed owls in the swaying tree tops.  Beneath the leaves are tiny footprints… animals or imp?  You decide!    

Deciduous or evergreen? What can you find? Can you match a leaf to its tree? Can you match a petal to its flower?

Spring 1

Moon Zoom

Crash! What’s that in the playground? Stand back everyone – it looks like a UFO has crash-landed!

Find out the names of the planets. There’s Mercury, Neptune, Mars and … do you know any others? I’ve forgotten the rest. Then, an alien is found….can you help get him home? It’s got the experts in a right kerfuffle. Professor Pong doesn’t know what to do!

Are you ready for take-off? Hold tight…. 5-4-3-2-1… LIFT OFF!!

Spring 2

Bright Lights Big City

Put on your best outfit because you’re invited to have tea with the Queen. Use your best manners and comb your hairs, as one will not be amused if you don’t!

What do you know about England’s capital city? Let’s find out about London, including its history, transport and famous landmarks. Step back in time and discover what happened in the Great Fire of London. Where did it start? How did it end? Create a model of the bakery on Pudding Lane.

Are you ready for the bright lights of the big city? Hop in a black cab and …. enjoy the ride.

Summer 1

Rio de Vida

Hot Hot Hot!

Dancing feet, step to the samba beat!

Shake it, shimmy, hands in the air.

Wave your flags in the cool night air!

Come join the party down in Rio, keeping the rhythm with your party shaker!

Summer 2


KERPOW! Intergalactic greetings, young heroes. It’s time to rescue the planet from evil villains! Who’s your favourite superhero? Spider-Man? Wonder Woman? Maybe your heroes are ordinary people who’ve achieved great things. Or is it those people who save lives in our emergency services that you admire most? Is that phone box free? Please excuse me…I have to save the world! ZAP! WHIZZ! ZOOOM
