|Classroom code of conduct|
This list was put together by the pupils themselves in the first week of term. All the ideas came from the children themselves, in order to maximise our learning potential in the classroom.
- To be happy in our learning and have fun
- To respect the classroom itself and the items which belong to it
- To work together as a team
- To enter the classroom quietly
- To put our hands up if somebody would like to share something
- To have our eyes facing the teacher when he is talking
- To always strive to achieve our best

This half term we are exploring the depths of space; we will consider the scientific understanding of the solar system and Earth's position within this, including some of the most famous scientists that have shaped our understanding, from Aristotle to Galileo to Stephen Hawking. We will additionally look at how space has influenced many writers in the genre of science fiction and how to create artistic spacescapes.
If your child develops an interest in any of our topics we would love to see the result of any independent or parent-led projects. The Cherry Hinton library and local museums are extremely helpful and a wonderful resource.
