Come along and join Beegu's adventures on Earth!
This term our topic will be around space and aliens, we will use Pie Corbett's 'Talk for Writing' and 'Talk for Reading' approaches and bring writing and reading to life in the classroom!
To find out more about it follow the link below:
In maths the children will continue developing strategies to help them add and subtract. I wonder who will be our first white badge winner? Come on my little ninjas!
In science, we will learn about materials and explore their properties. Children will then use their knowledge of materials in D&T to help them plan and design the perfect home for Beegu on Earth.
We will also learn about weather patterns in the UK and have a go at saying it in Spanish too!!!
This promises to be a very busy and exciting term indeed. Stay in touch, we will keep you posted!

Well done to our new RED TED owner this week!
The children designed their 'perfect' home to shelter a lost alien. They thought about the materials they would need to build their houses and what techniques they would use to assemble the different parts.
They then worked in groups to create houses using different materials:
Team 1 built a tall newspaper town house with door and windows
Team 2 built a paper teepee with paper straws
Team 3 built a log cabin with wooden blocks
Team 4 built a cardboard bungalow out of cereal boxes
Next week we will evaluate our houses and test their resistance to adverse weather!
