Welcome to Owl Class
We have had an exciting couple of weeks. The children enjoyed our trip to Winchester Science Centre, especially the planetarium and our rocket making workshop. They also looked great and had fun on Friday with our Children in Need activities, especially all the weighing and mixing when we made our own Pudsey biscuits. Have a look at the bottom of the page for some photos of both of these events.
In English we have used the 'Man on the Moon' video to help us write descriptions of people and places, to write letters with questions and to write postcards to explain how a character is feeling. We will be using our knowledge of space and the planets to enable us to write our own non-fiction books.
In maths we are thinking about money. We will be finding different ways to make the same amount, adding different amounts together, finding change and solving problems to help us understand the different coins and notes we can use.
In our Topic learning the children have enjoyed finding out about Yuri Gagarin, Valentina Tereshkova, The Apollo 11 astronauts and Tim Peake to help them understand more about the ‘Space Race’ and some of the Significant people involved in it and we will also be learning about the planets in our Solar System. We will also be learning about the oceans and continents of the world, as well as looking at the geography of Sandhurst and comparing it to Nepal.
Please can you make sure that all the children’s uniform, especially cardigans and jumpers are named, and that they have a named water bottle in school every day.
Reading books are changed on Mondays, but please send them into school every day as the children may also read on other days.
This year our PE day is Wednesday and we will be visiting the library on Tuesdays.
