My we've been busy
Class 5P have had a busy first half term working on our space topic with Mr Perrin and Mrs Wilson.
The children have written space stories and learnt all about the first men on the moon in English. In I.T we have created databases about the planets and in history we have traveled all the way back from Galileo and the development of the telescope right up to Major Tim Peake and modern space travel on the International Space Station.
This coming half term we are looking forward to a visit from a planetarium, researching various artists who are inspired by space, investigating the world and our locality with Google Earth in IT and even creating our own space music inspired by Gustav Holst and David Bowie no less.
We will be introducing exciting changes to our Guided Reading sessions after half term and encourage all the children to read as much as possible away from school and practice their recall and inference skills.
Spellings will continue to be given out on a Monday but we also encourage children to practice the statutory 300 words.
