Thank you to the parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles of the 'Astronaut' and 'Alien' groups who have joined us for our parent information sessions. We know from your comments that you have enjoyed looking through the children's wonderful work, and talking to the class teacher about their progress and targets. If you have not been into school yet for this important session your invitation will be on its way before the end of this half term.

Wow! What a surprise Year One had on a windy Thursday
afternoon. Mrs Bolton rushed in with news that a strange sight had been
captured on the CCTV camera. They dashed out to find evidence that something very
strange indeed had happened! The wreckage of a 'Spacecraft' was found.
We decided it must have crashed into a tree in the infant playground.
We interviewed staff to see if anyone had noticed
anything unusual that afternoon. Mrs Mayat told us
that as she was putting the outdoor toys in the shed she saw a flash of
green climb up into the tree next to where we found the crash site.
What could it be? We had some great ideas ...
A Canon - Zohair An Astronaut - Mati
A Pirate - Kian An Alien - Kasim
A Rocket - Menas and Adam Father Christmas - Isabella
We looked at the evidence ...
2 Silver Balls
Orange Glittery Slime
We write Police Incident Forms to help the Police solve the mystery and created
'Missing' posters to put up around school. We also wrote captions to match
photographs taken at the scene.
In our history lesson this week we learnt about the first men to walk on the moon. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the
moon on the 20th July 1969. We thought about how long ago this was and discovered it was when Mrs Ramsden was a little girl!
We looked at self-portraits created by famous artists. We then drew our own
'Space Style' self-portraits! Using mirrors to check our features were in the right places!
In our science lesson this week we investigated the materials we found at the scene of the space crash. We used our senses of sight and touch to describe what each material looked and felt like.
We enjoyed creating our own aliens using Paint.net in our computing lessons and then setting them onto a background of
the 'Space Crash' setting.
The children have created their own 'moon surface' for our rocket to land on.
We got very messy using mod-roc and then painted the surface with glitter and glue.
Look at the amazing 'Galaxy' that Kian created using playdoh!
