Week beginning 12th January

This week:

In literacy we will be learning a slightly shortened version of ‘The Way Back Home’ by Oliver Jeffers. We will listen to it, join in, add actions to help us remember the words, retell sections of the story in pairs, retell the whole story in groups, and eventually retell the story in pairs! We will be practising it in as many different ways as possible, to ensure that we really know the story well.

In maths we will be learning how to read o’clock times on analogue clocks, and how to accurately draw the hands onto a clock to represent o’clock times. We will also begin to look at half-past times and where the long, minute hand is when the time is o’clock and half-past.

In science we will be continuing to consider appropriate materials for a rocket.

In history we will be continuing our space travel timelines, which we began last week. We are really enjoying learning about the history of space travel and have been asking so many great questions, to help us find out more! Why don’t you ask us some of the facts we’ve learnt so far; for example, we can tell you all about the first animals that went into space.

In art we will be painting the clay rockets that we made last week. We can’t wait for you to see these tomorrow!

As all of you hopefully know, we have Come and See sessions tomorrow, between 3.15 – 3.45 and 5 – 5.30. This is an opportunity for you to come and look at our books and see all of the lovely learning we have been doing. We are very proud of our work and think you will be too! 🙂

  1. Yes Harry has told me lots about dogs and chimps in space and mostly about how
    they didn’t always make it back. He is loving the space theme. I am looking forward to
    Seeing some of his work tomorrow.
