Last week our Explorer Topic was 'Pirates and the Ocean'. We build Pirate ships out of blocks, learnt to share gold pirate coins equally between two Pirates and began to use some Pirate speech in our role play- 'Ahoy maties!'

 

This week we are learning about Space, our key text is 'Whatever Next'. We will be looking at what astronauts wear, how they move around in Space with no gravity and will be learning the planets names through a great song - https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=planets+song&&view=detail&mid=A5A9B54E1C1A51775B3EA5A9B54E1C1A51775B3E&&FORM=VRDGAR&ru=%2Fvideos%2Fsearch%3Fq%3Dplanets%2Bsong%26FORM%3DHDRSC3

Please practice these at home and encourage the children to recognise them on signs, in newspapers and in books.

I will be putting on a Phonics Parent workshop next half term to help you support your child with their Phonics at home too.

 

Have a lovely half term!
