Here are some of the questions we will be asking:

How can we be a good friend?

When I look up what do I see and why does the sky need to be so high?

What makes a balloon fly? What can we do with a balloon?

What adventures could we have in the sky? Where could we go if we go up up and away?

When we look up at the trees in Autumn what do we see and why?

Whizz, bang and pop! What can we see and smell in the sky and why?

How can we keep safe?

How do we know whether it is night time or day time?

What are the differences between night and day?

What was in the sky in Bethlehem and why?

 

Here is a copy of our 'Home Learning' for the Autumn term!

10.1.18 "How do arctic animals stay warm in icy water?" Today we investigated blubber! We found out we could keep our hand in icy water much longer with our layer of "blubber." We used a stop watch to time our friends, and recorded our results in a table.

1.12.17 It's Christmaaaas! This morning we were so excited to find Olaf in our classroom! He had brought us a pile of numbered presents, a chocolate advent calendar, a Christmas tree and two sacks of decorations! We correctly ordered the presents and opened number 1 to find a Christmas story for us to read. We then took turns to decorate the tree! Thank you for your support with our non uniform day to raise money for our friendship bench.
