Blast Off!

We have really enjoyed our learning all about Space this term. We started by reading and acting out the story 'Whatever Next' by Jill Murphy and this inspired us to make our own big rocket out of a huge cardboard box. We have been going on missions to different planets ever since.


We asked lots of interesting questions about Space like; 'Where do Astronaughts live when they are in space?', Why is Space Dark?', 'What makes a rocket blast off?' and 'Are Aliens real?'. So we went off to the library to find some books to help us find the answers.




In P.E we have made up dances to show with our bodies and our faces how we might travel and how we might feel if we were visiting different planets.


On some of our journeys we met some aliens and communicated with them. So we drew them or made them out of construction or junk. Then we made them passports and 'missing posters' because they were lost!

We also enjoyed the stories 'Alien's love Underpants' and 'The Aliens are coming!'.

Other Stuff

What a wonderful trip to Morrisons we had on Thursday morning!

We tried several Italian foods such as fresh Ciabatta with olive oil and fresh basil leaves, various cold pastas, Italian meats and cheeses including a blue cheese.

We tried Italian olives and Greek olives to compare them to.

The butchery department talked the children through the process of making minced beef, used for bolognaise and demonstrated making fresh burgers too.

Our children were also luckily enough to look at and touch various fresh fish including a squid!  We have since tasted some cooked octopus in school which got very mixed reviews!

In school we learnt about how olive oil is made and we visited the oils aisle to look at the various choices on offer.

Morrisons provided cookies and a drink each in the café to conclude our visit which the children (and adults) really enjoyed.
