Reception really enjoyed taking part in another Erasmus project celebration, Space Day! All of the children looked fantastic and were very keen to get involved in all of the space activities! Some children made alien masks, other split pin astronauts and some even made space themed stick puppets!
We enjoyed looking at the night sky and discovered that some stars make patterns that we call Constellations. We looked at some of the most famous Constellations like ‘The big dipper’ and ‘Orion’. We made our own space paintings by flicking paint from our brush and then added our own Constellation to our paintings. We each made our own telescope and used them to explore our wonderful paintings.
Reception have designed and are making their own emergency vehicles that we would see at the airport or at an airshow.
We have collected old boxes, containers and pots and have thought about the different shapes that we need to use. We first used masking tape to make stick the boxes together. We have chosen to make ambulances, fire engines and police cars!
The next step was to paper mache our vehicle so that we can paint them when dry. It was a messy job but we all enjoyed it!
This week we look forward to painting our models and adding wheels!
Year 5 took part in photo orienteering as part of an outdoor learning session. The children were given images of items within the school grounds. They had to find the items and identify the co-ordinates on their maps.
As part of our Erasmus Airshows project, Year 2 have started to learn about the Wright Brothers and their amazing invention of the world’s first successful airplane. The children were fascinated to learn that this was only just over 115 years ago.
