Further adventures with Bob the spaceman this week meant we wrote a postcard about our journey to the moon. We concentrated on using adjectives to make our work more exciting for the reader. We have designed posters warning people about dropping litter. As it takes up a lot of Bob’s time picking this all up from the moon so he doesn’t have a lot of time for somersaulting and other things he enjoys. This has linked in with our assemblies this week all about the value of caring. 

In maths it has been all about counting on from a given number, accurately using a number line to add and finding the missing number in an addition equation using a number line. 

We had the chance to do a brilliant science experiment this week. We created moon craters with flour. We made predictions on what we thought would happen when Miss Gilbert dropped an item from head height and knee height. We had a large object and a small object. Can the children tell you what happened? What happened with the craters? We have also looked at the different phases of the moon and how it affects the tides, and we drew the shadows on the moon to represent some of the different phases. 

Music has been linked to our space theme and this week the children were composing a piece of music based on Earth. We listened to some music representing some of the planets and then worked in groups to compose their own piece. 

We still have some children in Demeter who are not bringing in a water bottle for them to access during the day. Please could we ask you ensure your child has a bottle in school. 

Show and tell can be connected to the theme ‘Up, up and away’. We look forward to seeing what the children wish to bring or tell us about.
