This week we have really got going with learning about Space and our topic, The Night Sky. The children have been keen to learn about the planets and you may hear them singing our Planet Song this weekend. We have learnt all of the planet names in order from the sun- there are 8! We have been counting them as we learn them. We also watched a short film with lots of great information about space, which they have really enjoyed.So we need a rocket! We have been painting our rocket this week, which took 2 afternoons of hard work.It looks great in our classroom and we enjoy blasting off into space in it, dressed as an astronaut.This Friday we had storytelling cafe. We now have a storytelling chair in the classroom and at Storytelling Cafe we share bowls of fruit and tell stories using objects in the special golden box. We are learning to use storytelling language and be inventive!Our focus pupils this week were Harry Poole and Alfie Pearse who stood up and told us all about their photos from home. They spoke very well; we loved Alfie’s motorbike and Harry’s pony Tuppence.Have a good weekend!
