Our new topic of Space has well and truly taken off! We have looked at the story Whatever Next starting with acting out the story and ending with retelling it and the children have done some amazing writing showing me all of their skills. We also thought about what we would take to the moon with us if we were to go. Maths has focused on shape and again the children have impressed me with their knowledge of 2D shape. We even played 'What's in the bag' to describe the properties of the shapes. On Wednesday we had a visit from Star Lab where the children became astronauts for part of the day and we explored our Solar System and the constellations that you can see in the sky at night. We had a go at the computers again on Wednesday. Many of us found this tricky so if you could practice turning a computer on and off at home and logging on to Purple Mash and having a go at that it would be wonderful! There are loads of Space themed activities you can do there. I will put a link below. In history we learnt about the first people in space and the robots that went to the moon before people did.
Have a lovely weekend and I look forward to seeing everyone's Home Learning Journals on Monday.
