Our Literacy work this term has been based on the book ‘Man on the Moon – A day in the life of Bob’. The children have been working in groups and individually to produce a range of expanded noun phrases to describe different scenes in the story.  We have also produced our own story board and have used the I Pad to take pictures of the still frames as each point in the story. We loved making the resources for this and all worked as a team in our groups.

As part of our whole school science topic of space we have been learning about how the planets orbit the sun. We worked in groups and used the balloons as planets to show this. These are the beginnings of our invented planets! We have used balloons and paper mache to create these. We will be painting and designing these soon.

We were very excited to receive a note each from space! The aliens have gone missing so we made a ‘Missing’ poster to put up around school. You never know the aliens might start appearing after half term!!
