We have had a brilliant week settling back in after our Easter break. We have started our new topic all about space!

A rocket ship has landed in our classroom, and the children have been busy dressing up as astronauts, making outer space passports and writing stories about where the alien slime has come from. Outside we have set up a rocket, and the children have been on a journey from Earth, the mars and even a close shave with the sun.

We were very excited to find out that a drone has landed on Mars! We watched the footage the drone has collected and share what we thought Mars was like.

Our English learning has focused on the story, ‘Man on the Moon’ by Simon Bartram. We have learnt new vocabulary and created a story map. Next week we will be using our story map to retell the story. You can practice the story using the story map below:

In our maths learning, we have been exploring numbers beyond 10, using a range of different resources inside and outside.

We are very excited for another week finding out more about space!
