5,4,3,2,1...blast off! We really enjoyed our Space topic with a focus on rockets. We loved developing our descriptive writing having been inspired by the story of 'The Way Back Home' by Oliver Jeffers. In fact, we enjoyed the book so much, that Mrs Ashwell found several more books by this author in the school library for us to enjoy in the classroom.

We loved making protoype air-powered straw rockets and then made adjustments to our designs to see if they could be improved in any way.

We thoroughly enjoyed the visit from StarLincs. Our visitor, Lucy, explained all about the amazing Planetarium that she had set up in the school hall. We wowed her with our knowledge about space and we listened very carefully to her. We learned so much more about space and our solar system and even had a special light show of the night sky showing us the star constellations! 




We had a great time learning about bridges in our Design topic. We loved listening to the story of 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff' and writing character descriptions of the Troll and the goats.

Inspired by the creations of Iggy Peck in the story 'Iggy Peck Architect', we designed and then constructed our own bridges. First, we practised making various bridge components such as flanges, tab walls and L-braces before constructing our cardboard bridges. We developed our design technology and fine motor skills. It was fun to acquire lots of new design technology vocabulary too! 






Welcome back! 


Just to let you know that our PE days will be Tuesday and Wednesday this year. This means that PE kits will need to be in school on those days. The children do now all have their own lockers where they keep their belongings during the day and their PE kits can stay in there also. 

More information will follow regarding homework and reading folders.
