Our school's Learning Challenge this term is 'Why is Neil Armstrong a brave person?'
In Literacy our special stories are based on travelling into space. Firstly we will act out and retell the story 'Whatever Next', where Baby Bear travels to the moon in a cardboard box rocket! Then we will enjoy the story 'Aliens love underpants' and maybe have a visit from an alien?! Lastly, as we hear the story 'The way back home', we will imagine travelling into space, and what we might need for the journey. We will follow instructions to make a special space sandwich!
In Maths the children will use 2D and 3D shapes to build space rockets. They will continue to use counting and number recognition skills to solve problems with the aliens.They will investigate the weight of moon rocks and compare the distance that space rockets (paper aeroplanes) can travel.
Understanding the World
In this topic we will be learning about space. The children will look at pictures and video clips of the moon and compare with our own environment. They will make design and make their own paper aeroplane space rocket.
It's Chinese New Year in February
We will celebrate by enjoying Chinese food, sharing 'Lucky Money' envelopes, making a Chinese dragon and dancing to Chinese music.
