How many different ways can we group these objects?

In the Tiger Who Came To Tea, Sophie and her mum have to go shopping to replace all the food that the tiger has eaten. So Venus class went to our local supermarket to help us learn about mapping skills and the landmarks in our local area.
When we navigated our way back to school we created a journey map. We made our own maps and models of the things that we had seen.

Today we had some incredible visitors to class! Lots of different creatures from snakes to snails and bearded dragons to chinchillas came to visit. We learnt so many facts and we had the chance to hold or stroke them if we wanted to. Well done Venus. You were excellent creature carers!

What a brilliantly busy start to our day today as our parents and families came into school to join us for our curriculum open morning. We launched the next part of our ‘Journeys’ topic by creating a Stephenson’s Rocket using collage. Each team had a section and when it was complete we put all the pieces together. The children had great fun working with their grownups and each other. We look forward to learning all about the Rocket and train travel after half term.

We had a fantastic day at the National Railway Museum. We had gone to see Stephenson’s Rocket and to explore how trains have changed since its invention in 1829. We were told the story of the Rainhill Trials and how Stephenson designed the winning entry with the help of his father and the engineer Henry Booth. We learnt about the science behind how steam trains work. We saw lots of famous and interesting trains from around the world including the record breaking Mallard and the Bullet Train, before coming back to school. Thank you Venus for a brilliant day!

Venus have been very busy over the last 2 weeks learning songs and lines for our Christmas production ‘Born in a Barn’. We are joining our friends in Earth class for the show with everyone having a part to play. It has been brilliant to watch the effort and enthusiasm that the children have put into their rehearsals and it will be a great show. The final practice is over and now for our performances next week but here is a sneak look at our superstars in action!

Our science unit this half term is all about materials. We have been busy exploring and investigating materials and thinking about their names and properties. We went on a hunt around school to look for the everyday uses and properties of different materials. In class we sorted objects according to their properties and used this knowledge to make posters. Super science work Venus!
