Fly Me to the Moon
Our topic for the second half of the Autumn Term is 'Fly Me to the Moon'. The learning that takes place around this topic is about the planets, space travel and history and the Earth's movement in space. The first week of our topic we have been learning about the Sun, Moon and Earth and their movement in space. We were very lucky this week as we were visited by a planetarium. In the planetarium we learned lots about the planets, the stars and constellations and traveling in space.
We have experimented this week with different media to create space pictures. We designed our own planets, made space scenes, designed our own rockets and much more...
This year we started with the topic of 'Ourselves'. This included settling into school, learning the routines and expected behaviour, learning about Kelso's Choices, developing their growth mind-set and classroom rules. Kelso's Choices gives children the skills to resolve their smaller conflicts independently. We have taught the children in class how some conflicts (problems) are big such as, someone is hurt or is very upset then they need to seek an adults assistance or if it is a small problem such as, someone tapping a pencil that they can use one of Kelso's choices to solve it without an adult. We have included a video below that explains Kelso's Choices.
