This half term we are exploring the topic of space. We had a suprise on our first day back, as we found something had crashed in our wildlife area. There was lots of different objects and even some green gloop.
We had a fabulous time dressing up as mad scientist, astronauts and aliens.
Thank you to everyone who donated on space day. This allowed us to have a visit from a planetarium. We were all very excited to enter the large dome in our hall and really enjoyed learning about the sky above us, how to tell a star from a planet and all about our solar system.
To enhance our space topic we had a space science week. We visited other classes where we did lots of different science experiments including: making plastic, making slime, making fizzing Jupiters and moon sand.
We had lots of fun and even got to take some of our experiments home with us.
We have been learning a lot about the planets and their characteristics and the order they orbit the sun. We have researched what each planet is like and recorded the main features such as: their temperature, if they have rings or moons and how big they are.
This is a song for children about the 8 planets in our solar system. It's colorful, fun and a great learning tool for toddlers, kindergartners and parents. Please sing along and enjoy.

Welcome to the start of year 1! Have a look at the photos of our new classroom! The children have made a great start to year 1. Our website page will give you some information about the topics we are learning about and will include photos of the children's work.
In Year One, we all take part in Read Write Inc from 9:00 to 10:00. In this time we learn our sounds, letters, how to decode and read words and how to spell them. We also learn how to write sentences using finger spaces, full stops and capital letters and as we get better with our writing we then make our sentences more interesting using 'power words'. To help your children I have included a video which shows you how the graphemes are pronounced.
Learn how to pronounce pure sounds from Set 1 Sounds through to Set 3 with 5 year-old Sylvie.
From 10:00 to 11:00 we, as a school, do our maths lesson. Within this we learn number and shape, space and measure. This includes how we write our numbers, place value, addition and subtraction, shapes and how to measure things. The children learn though mainly practical activities at the begining of the week and then record what we have learnt towards the end of the week. On a Friday we have a challenge day. This is when we practise what we have learnt during the week and apply this to a problem.
Go up into space as you count up by twos with a dog and a song on a crazy rocket cruise!
Count by fives from zero to one hundred! Skip Counting with an original animation and song... don't skip it!
Count by tens from zero to one hundred with an adventurous dog and an adventurous song!
In the afternoon we do our 'Wider Curriculum' activities. This includes our topic writing, Art and Design, Geography, History, Computing and P.E.
As part of our computing curriculum we have to learn about algorithms. An algorithm is a list of rules to follow in order to solve a problem. We learnt about algorithms by giving instructions to solve the problem of making a jam sandwich.
