Jacob's mum has found a way for you to see Stephenson's Rocket for yourself. Although we are now moving onto the geography element of our topic, I am sure that you will enjoy using the link below to visit the Science Museum and see the Rocket as if you were visiting the museum in person:
To find the Rocket: go to floor 0, turn around, head down through the first hall into the space hall then through into Making the Modern World.
Worksheets Monday to Wednesday
Dear Parents, I would like to set up some zoom meetings this week, in friendship groups, so the children can have a chance to talk to each other about what they are up to at home. If you could email me the names of 2 or 3 friends your child would like to meet, via zoom, then I will sort the children into groups and set up the links for this to happen.
