 Out Of This World!

 

Our Spring term has begun with a CRASH! Alien`s have landed in our outdoor area and they have left behind a mysterious egg. We can`t wait to see what`s in store for us! Stay tuned, as the children will be presenting their own 'News Reports' based on the big event!

This term, our class team Mrs Lynes, Mrs Barber and Mrs Tate look forward to transforming our classroom into a 'Space zone'. The children will be getting stuck into our fantastic 'Space Station' role play, as well as our 'Reading rocket'. We will have so many opportunities to get busy creatively, making solar systems, aliens, space travel vehicles and even our own space music!

Throughout this topic we will be going back in time, researching famous astronauts, specialist vehicles and the vastness of space itself. The children will have lots of scientific experiences, exploring light and dark, forces around us and even changes with heat.

Our class stories will include 'Aliens Love Underpants' (where children can design, make and parade in their own fabulous pants). As well as 'Whatever Next', giving children a chance to get stuck into their own story telling.

Within the early years, we always follow the interests of the children and cannot wait to see where their imaginations take us next. We have already had suggestions of: dinosaurs, mythical creatures and a class airport to travel around our own world!

To infinity and Beyond!

 

Within class we follow the ‘Letter and Sounds’ phonics scheme, allowing all children to access and practise their sounds and become confident and competent readers. If you wish to find any more information on our current topics and curriculum please look at our topic web and class timetable.
