Reception have come to the end of their space topic which was enormous fun.
Wonderful rockets were made from copious amounts of junk; aliens in flying saucers took over our classroom and knew nothing about numbers, counting or patterns! So the children had to show them – the favourite being doubling. Each child had to show an alien how to double quantities; of course the aliens who love underpants chose to put spots onto their favourite pair of pants!
In literacy the class learnt how to make a list and practised their writing and letter formation to write a list of things to take up in a rocket. We had fun trying to walk like an astronaut and loved the dressing up box and our makeshift rocket but best of all was splatter painting to make an intergalactic galaxy!
