The Floor Is Lava! (and other Reception adventures)

In Dragonfly Class this week, we have created more rockets and aliens. The children chose their colours for fire and metal and used fine motor skills to cut and stick. Their imaginations were as incredible as the milky way itself!

Then we beamed down to a planet that was burning hot. The children had to communicate and problem solve to cross from one end of the planet to the other end… Next we visited an icy planet, recaptured all of the moon rocks and alien samples, and arrived back on Earth just in time to learn about Venus.

On Thursday. at 2pm, we are inviting in dads, and any other parent or guardian who would like to come and make rockets. Please sign in at the office and any donations of selotape, masking tape and foil would be greatly appreciated.

We are continuing to write sentences based on our story and we will publish our space book next week.

Please continue to read with your child at least three times a week, as this is vital to their learning and understanding.

All the best and please remember that PE is on a Monday and Tuesday, your child will need a change of clothes. We will change back once we are finished.
