Autumn Term 1 Moon Zoom
What's that in the playground? Let's go outside and take a look. Stand back everyone- it looks like a UFO has crash landed!
Find out who might have landed by exploring the craft and investigating scattered scientific specimens. Create a 'Welcome to Earth' box for an alien explorer. What can you put in it to help explain what life is like on our planet?
Would you like to be an astronaut? You'll need a pretty sturdy spacecraft if you do. Start off small by making a four wheeled space buggy.....WHOOSH! How far can you make it travel?
Find out the names of the planets. There's Mercury, Neptune, Mars and ...... do you know any others? I've forgotten the rest!
Then, an alien is found .....can you help him get home?
It's got the experts in a right kerfuffle. Professor Pong doesn't know what to do!
Are you ready for lift off Key Stage 1?
HOLD tight .....5-4-3-2-1 .....LIFT OFF!
In order to support your child with their learning we ask that you hear them read daily. Reading books will be changed when we feel they can read it fluently and talk about different aspects of the book when prompted. A brief note of how they are doing should be made in their reading record. However, if you have a particular concern about your child's learning, please come in and talk to us so that we can address this as soon as possible.
Every half term the children are given take home tasks which are linked to their topic. We encourage the children to present their learning in a style that suits them. We hope that the children will find them both enjoyable and valuable.
Children will need to have a complete P.E kit in school (clearly labelled with your child's name) P.E takes place on a Tuesday and Friday. Please make sure your child has a tracksuit or something similar for when the weather gets colder.
We do not encourage bringing toys to school as this can cause distress if they become lost or broken.
We hope you enjoy reading our class page. You will find lots of information on what we will be learning about and how you can support your child with their learning.
Please ensure that you provide your child with everything they need for the week:
Please contact us via the office. We will get back to you as soon as we can. Any letters or payments also need to be handed in straight to the office. Please do not put them into your child's book bag as they may not get checked daily.
