Autumn 1 - Moon Zoom 
What a busy half term we have had. Our topic Moon Zoom saw us making rockets, aliens, moon crafts and solar system headbands. We have been very creative! The children have loved all the creative sessions and know lots of facts about space. We have enjoyed watching films about astronauts and the life they lead when living in space. We learned some very interesting facts and finished our topic by sending home some facts on a post card.
We have also had quite a few visitors into school; the Police, Reverend Jennie, Dave from Box2Bfit, Devon from Kids R fit Hoopstarz, Ross from the Circus and Richard from Drakes book shop. The children have been on their best behaviour each time, have listened well and followed instructions.
Autumn 2- Bright Lights, Big City.

Well Autumn 2 didn’t go fully to plan! The Fire fighters cancelled their visit, our actor visit didn’t go ahead and our class closed! Despite all of that we have had fun and learned lots. We looked at London and all the wonderful places we could go to if we were lucky enough to visit. Then we looked at London long ago and the impact that the Great Fire of London had. We learned our number bonds to 10 and 20, counted, ordered numbers, compared numbers and even looked at money and the value of coins and notes.

When we returned after our class closure we started to celebrate Christmas. We practised our play, made decorations, calendars, cards, learned about the nativity and the importance of Jesus and we had an amazing “Christmas Day” where we enjoyed a reindeer run, party games, yummy food and most importantly had lots of fun.
