Parents - don't forget to log on to tapestry to find out what your child has been learning at school this week!
As a school we are having a space fortnight - celebrating the launch of Joey the Swan, our school mascot, into sapce! In EYFS we have taken part in lots of space themed activities too!
We have been reading lots of space themed books - with our main focus being on "Whatever Next"
We have thought about the moon and the journey that the be
ar went on to get there. We are having a picnic on the moon just like he did and will be writing letters home to mummy to tell her what the moon is like.
We have created models of rockets and alien space ships using cutting and sticking techniques along with paint.
Understanding the world
We have been thinking about the planets in our solar system.
We have used a story called "Back to Earth with a bump" to help us. In this story, a little boy takes off in his bed / rocket and tries to find the moon. On the way he discovers lots of different planets and learns what they look like.
Pants are Private
The children in EYFS have had a lesson thinking about how to keep ourselves and our bodies safe.
As part of this work we looked at the NSPCC's "pants are private" work.
The children have watched the "pantosaurus" video, then discussed and thought about keeping what is covered by our pants as private.
