Synopsis

Astronaut by Louise Spilsbury

The Big Picture series launches with 16 titles for KS1 all about what is going on all around the world, split into four high interest topics. Find out how other people around the world live/lived; extreme animals habitats or weather across the globe; faraway homes made of ice and much, much more. Each book within this Key Stage 1 series will provide a number of jumping off points in a high interest, accessible way, with which to cover the 'big curriculum picture'. Eventually backed up by teacher notes comprising background information and teaching notes re: how to use the books to cover statutory national curriculum key skills. Could you handle a job in space? From the first moon landing to other amazing space visits, Astronaut introduces young readers to the people who make it happen.
