5, 4, 3, 2, 1…….let’s learn about space

The children have been busy transforming their knowledge about space. The children have been developing and applying their knowledge and skills through various space activities in the classroom. From write dance planets, forming planets using playdough; and constructing rockets and space ships through loose parts, art, design and technology, and construction. Plus many other exciting learning opportunities like forming numbers correctly, reading high frequency words at the carpark, and driving moon buggies on sand.


What a wonderful day we had. We began by boarding the 364 Bish Nym, reaching 250 miles above the surface of the Earth to reach the ISS. The children then rocketed from one immersive activity to another, exploring forces, materials and cosmology. Best bit: Mrs Lake dressed as an astronaut! Priceless.

Space Day!

5, 4, 3, 2, 1 blast off!

What an amazing ‘Space Day’ we had yesterday. The children had great fun taking part in our ‘Space Day’, and thoroughly enjoyed the various space activities in their house groups too. You all looked great as little astronauts and aliens!!

The children explored the phases of the moon with Mrs Lake and Miss Isaac (student teacher). We learnt how the phases of the moon were made and created using playdough, Jaffa cakes; and through drawing with pens too. Well done little astronauts and aliens for helping to keep the moon spinning and phasing through the month!


Busy constructing!

Children in class 2 have had a busy week of constructing. Anything from literacy, to maths, to constructing fireworks, and constructing poppies.

The children have thoroughly enjoyed ordering and retelling the story of ‘Whatever Next’. What great story tellers you are!! You have remembered the text so well!! Well done. 

Class 2 are building their way to becoming mathematical wizards. The children have been learning pairs of numbers that make a total through addition.

The children have been designing, building and constructing fireworks and poppies this week, as part of our learning about firework night and Rememberance Day. The children have thoroughly learning this week!! Well done to all.

Next week, we will take part in our whole school space day on Tuesday, and Children in Need on Friday. We can’t wait!
