Spring 2, Week 1

Welcome back everyone, hopefully you have all had a restful half term. We began our new topic this week with the theme of ‘journey into space’. The children have been having great fun making space rocks out of playdough, creating their own lunar landing sites with rocks and astronaut figures and have been learning all about the planets in our solar system. We were very intrigued to learn about the orbit of planets and the children have amazed us with their facts about black-hole and meteors this week. We enjoyed learning about each of the planets and have even written a list of things we would pack, to go on a journey to another planet!

The children have also enjoyed learning all about the constellations this week. We counted the number of stars in some of the most well-known constellation and used star-stickers on black paper, to replicate some of our favourites. We then used the star-gazer app on the IPads, to search the sky for Leo the Lion, the Big Dipper (also part of the Great Bear), look for Sirius to dog star, Cassiopeia the W shaped queen constellation and our favourite…‘the pterodactyl’ (also known as Cygnus the swan, but we decided it looked more pterodactyl-like!) We also used our number skills this week to play a fun space number game, adding amounts to 10 to place the correct number of rockets on each numbered planets. We have been encouraged to use our fingers OR physical objects to understand that when we add, our number gets bigger. Next week, we start to think about what it might be like to be an astronaut and of course celebrate World Book Day 2019 which is always a very exciting day.

Enjoy your weekends everybody!
