Week Commencing: 18.02.19

We found picture instructions inside the crash site suitcase and we used them to make our own 'Moon Dough!'

In English, we had a go at writing our own moon dough recipe, we described the moon dough and made adverts to make you want to get your own moon dough. We also had a go at filming our own moon dough TV advert using the iPads - that was really fun! 


In maths this week, we have really enjoyed counting in 2s, 5s, and 10s all the way up to 100! We had a go at using hundred squares to see if we could spot any patterns. This is what we found: 



In topic this week, we looked at different space travel events from history and we put together a little timeline of key events. Did you know, Laika the dog went into space in 1957?


Clover Class have been incredibly busy! 

We have been practising for our class assembly for weeks and we finally got to show our adults. Thank you for coming! We hope you enjoyed watching it as much as we enjoyed putting it together!


We have also finished off our Moon Zoom topic with our rocket launch party - we looked amazing in our alien outfits and party clothes!

We even got to attend a concert by a band called Megson as part of our party! We enjoyed hearing and seeing them play their instruments. We even joined in by singing and dancing! 


Our alien friend, Scurnly, has assured us that he has arrived home safely to his family and he sent us this photo of him inside the rocket we built! We have loved learning about space. Some of our favourite bits were the exploding rocket experiment, decoding alien messages, learning some space songs, going inside the planetarium and, of course, building our rocket! 



Whatever could we be learning about next?!
