Space Welcome back from your Christmas break. We hope Santa came to all the children and everyone had fun! Here’s what’s happening this term in the Foundation Phase. 'Out of this World' is our Topic this half term and we are looking at lots to do with outer space. We have started the term researching facts about each planet and creating leaflets. Then we will go onto writing Diaries, looking at different people who have been up into space followed by writing our own diaries of our own journeys into space. We will finish the term with an Alien party so we will write invitations to our friends to join us in our celebrations. Also at the end of the term we are hoping to use an app called Green Screen to create videos of what we have learnt during this topic with the help of our Digital Leaders. Can't wait to see what they turn out like! In Maths, we are measuring using standard and non-standard units, analogue and digital times, number bonds, place value and problem solving. We will also be doing some practice papers to help us get ready for the Tests coming up in May. How can you help? Read books with your children and comment in their Reading Record books. Encourage the children to talk about what they have learnt in school and find out what they enjoyed.
CHILDREN'S READING RECORD The children will bring home their reading book bag everyday. The children will read in school with a member of staff once maybe twice weekly. When the children have read they are to place their book in the red box upstairs and it will be changed. Please ensure you or your child have commented in their yellow reading record book so we know they have read the book.
These are our 3D planets we made in groups and researched different facts about them and fed back to the rest of the class.
Once we researched the facts we made a leaflet about the planets.
After looking at lots of different different diaries about people going into space we made our own up.
