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!

Back at it, and ready to explore learning once again!

The first week back after half term has been a busy one!! We have started our first week back learning about Diwali, light and dark. The children have been learning about what is light and dark; and its many meanings – as in a light source, space, and celebrated in festive celebrations. The children have been exploring these many meanings through making Diwali lamps and lanterns, drawing henna pattersns, retelling stories about Diwali and the festival of light (including many other stories this week too), investigating and reporting on ‘space’ artefacts, and practising letter formation throuh a range of activities. So much learning and fun has been had this week!!!! See for yourselves 🙂

In maths, we have been learning about addition through using the part-whole model. This has allowed the children to develop their understanding of addition in such a fun and meaningful way.

In literacy, we have started learning about the story ‘Whatever Next’. The children have already started loving this story; and are enjoying retelling it using the props to help!

We hope we didn’t tire them out too much with such busy learning!! Look out for our space learning coming soon.

Enjoy the fireworks and stay safe!
