Our topic for the First half of the Spring term is 'Space'



In this topic we will be:

Learning about the different planets in our solar system, as well as the sun and our moon.

Understanding what astronauts need to survive in space, the different types of space rockets and shuttles and learning about the moon landings.

We will also be designing alien t shirts and making astronaut food (smoothies).


If you would like to find out more about what we are learning, please see the knowledge organiser below.


As part of our space topic Mrs Wilson brought in some astronaut food for us to try!

Reading at home


As part of the Little Wandle phonics and reading program, your child will be taking home two reading books.

One will be a decodable phonics book, which they can read by themselves (the Collins Big Cat book) and the other will be a reading for pleasure book, which your child has chosen and may need some help with reading some words.

Please ensure your child brings their reading folder, with both books in, into school everyday. Your child will be reading in a group three times per week.

If you need more help to use Google Classroom, this document may help.
