This term our topic is a space theme called ‘Moon Zoom’. This half term, we’ll travel through space to learn about the Solar System. We’ll make models of the Solar System and design spaceships, space buggies and space-related toys. Books and photographs will help us to learn about the first lunar landing and the astronauts who venture into space. We’ll also explore satellite images and investigate rockets. In history we will be learning about Neil Armstrong landing on the moon and enjoying a range of space themed books in our English. In maths we will be looking at directions and exploring fractions and money. Through our Art and Technology we will be making some collage pictures and exploring colours through painting. In our Science we will be finding out about materials.

Our Stratton key values are: Friendship, Respect, Responsibility, Peace and Truthfulness. Out of the many Christian values these were selected by the children, staff, parents and governors as our key values for school life.
Our home school value this term is COURAGE. Click on the link below to find out more.
It is important that our Christian Values are evident and encouraged in our daily lives within our school community. In recognition of children who show responsibility, respect, friendship, who are at peace or truthful, we now have a "values tree" where their photo will be placed. The tree, in the school hall, has colour coded leaves representing our chosen key Christian Values. When a child is spotted by a member of our school community to be demonstrating one of the Values, their photo will go on the appropriate colour leaf in celebration.
