This week we are still Up, Up and away with space.
We have been very busy adapting the story 'How to catch a star' by Oliver Jeffers and creating our own stories. We have had 'How to catch a unicorn' and 'How to catch a snowflake' as just some of the wonderful ideas.
In Maths, we have been helping the aliens who want to leave a party and helping the aliens that want to join. This helped us to focus on our one more and one less skills. Jack, Jake and Frankie have all be working with hundred numbers which we celebrated.
We have also been making up our own space performances using Non fiction facts in the reading den. Emma, Phoebe, Ella, Betsy and Florence White all performed to Mrs Richmond who said she now knew some new space facts!
In the small world area, we have visited Dino land and made our own space stories on the big whiteboard. Olaf, Harmoni and Carmen had lots of fun doing this.
