We've been learning all about space! 

We started our topic by reading the story of "Whatever Next!" in which a little bear goes to the moon in a box! We imagined what it would be like to go to the moon!

We've also been exploring making our own rockets from junk modelling!

Some of the children also made amazing rockets outside and used them as a basis for telling their own space stories!

On Friday the 1st of February we got lots of snow! We had lots of fun learning outside! We explored different animal tracks in the snow, built our own snowman and erupted some alien snow-canoes! We imagined what it would be like to live on an icy snow covered planet!

On the 12th February we celebrated Chinese New Year with our Year 6 buddies! We spent the day learning about Chinese celebrations for the Year of the Pig and made puppets, lucky red envelopes and painted our names in Chinese symbols. We also cooked up a Chinese feast and made up our own celebratory dances!
