Teacher's Comments

Welcome to adventurous Armstrong Class! We are an enthusiastic group of learners who love to explore and undertake new adventures, just like Neil Armstrong. Our class is named after him, as he was the first ever human to walk on the moon. Neil Armstrong had always been fascinated by space and flight so before he became the inspirational astronaut that he was, he was a successful military pilot. After his magnificent achievement of landing on the moon, Armstrong continued to work for NASA, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, before furthering his career as an educator in many different universities.

Just like Neil Armstrong, we also achieve extraordinary things in Armstrong Class, as we love to learn and explore in many different ways to acquire new skills. Asking questions is the key to exploring new ideas and 'out-of-this-world' thinking so our classroom is always filled with inquisitive minds and eager learners, perfectly representing Armstrong.

To kick-start our fabulous learning this year, we will also be on our travels, as we learn all about London in our first topic: I love London! We will be exploring the famous landmarks within our capital city and we will be using key texts to support our learning: 'Katie in London' and 'The Queen's Hat'. Later on in the year, we will also be learning all about space, as we read the story 'Whatever Next' and build our own rocket ships. We will delve deeper into the life of Neil Armstrong here and see how many future astronauts we have in Armstrong Class too!

We will learn all about dinosaurs in our discovery topic, whilst also exploring nearby enchanted woodlands in our treasure hunts. Adventurous Armstrong Class is filled with ambitious, passionate and fun learning this year - there is so much to explore!

That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.
