Toys in Space
Hoctopize

We have had lots of space themed fun this week. It started with making our own puppet versions of Hoctopize, the alien in our story, Toys in Space. We used yellow rubber gloves and attached ping pong ball eyes before decorating, the results were fabulous! In literacy we then wrote instructions for how to do this so that everyone can make their own Hoctopize. The children concentrated on writing command sentences (which involve being very bossy!) so that their instructions were clear.

We finished looking at multiplication in maths this week and have now moved on to consolidating our addition skills. Y1 have been concentrating on adding a 2 digit number and a 1 digit number up to 20 using lots of practical equipment and then moving onto drawing their own number lines, whilst Y2 have been adding two 2 digit numbers by partitioning the number into tens and ones before drawing a number line to help them find the answer. We have been concentrating on showing our working out clearly and checking our answers.

We took a trip to the moon on Thursday afternoon and re-lived Neil Armstrong's first steps onto the moon! We learnt about how those first astronauts got to the moon in Apollo 11 and about their space suits that kept them safe whilst they were there. In music we listened to some different sections of Holst's Planets and thought about what they made us think and feel. It was amazing how the sections of the music that represented the different planets could make us feel such different emotions.

There has been some fabulous homework brought in so far this half term, I am looking forward to looking at some of it in our show and tell time tomorrow.

Everyone should have brought home a parents evening letter on Friday with a slip to fill in for your preferred time slot. Do let me know if you have't had a letter.

I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend.
Miss Pitchford
