Space Dome 2019

5th Apr 2019

Key Stage 1 children had a fantastic morning on Thursday. A giant dome had appeared in the hall and, one by one, we crawled through a tunnel lit by fairylights to find our spot inside. When the show began, the children were treated to an immersive slide and light show with music and wonderful explanation from the Explorer Dome team. We enjoyed finding out about space and looked at the constellations we can see in the night sky while hearing some of the stories these stars have inspired over the years. Ask your children if they can tell you how Orion and his dog Sirius ended up in the sky. What a great way to end our space topic!

We've had such a fantastic start to our Space project this term. The children have been thinking about what they want to find out about this term, as well as learning about day and night with the help of Buzz Lightyear. They have also worked together in groups to create fantastic posters about the planets; learning the names of the planets, facts about the planets and what order they orbit the sun.

Key Stage 1 gardening

5th Nov 2018

Key Stage 1 were busy doing some gardening last week. We weeded our planters and planted some spring bulbs and winter bedding. The children discussed what they thought would happen to the plants over the winter. Some children thought the plants might die and others thought they may survive the frosty weather ahead. We are all looking forward to checking for signs of growth over the months to come. Feel free to have a look at what we planted and let us know when you spot any shoots!
