Hello everyone,

Keep going with your space project work. In class we built a junk modelled space rocket which was ready to go on an adventure to space.

I hope you all liked the ideas in the space project...keep having a go at the activities throughout the week.

Enjoy your day.

Today I have an exciting project for you all.... a space project.

Take a look in the Google Drive shared yesterday and you will find lots of ideas for finding out more about space and the moon. 

 

Maths learning today is to look at the Tuesday's Maths document and the coin ordering sheet and apply your knowledge from yesterday. I wonder if the size of the coin make a difference to its value?

 

Keep reading, practising your phonics and enjoying the outside :)

Look at the clouds in the sky... do they create any shapes? Do they look like anything you know? Take some time to just lay in your garden and watch the clouds...this would be using the emotion 'calm' like in the story.
