Space

We have had such fun the last few weeks studying Space. We made a rocket for our classroom, and lots of space crafts including clay aliens and rockets made from junk materials. We had a secret message from an alien and enjoyed writing secret messages to our friends using wax candles and 'magic' ink. 

During free flow activities we did jumping on the moon, we measured how high we could jump and then a teacher times that number by 6 to determine how high we can jump on the moon. We also tried walking on buckets to simulate how it might feel walking in a space suit with big heavy boots! We played writing and drawing upside down to appreciate what it must be like floating around in a space rocket.

We had lots of opportunity to take part in sensory play with sparkly moon dust and glittery moon dough to help us with our spelling and recognition of tricky words.

Happy 15th Birthday Charter!

This week we celebrated Charter's 15th birthday with fun '15' activities.  We made 'Happy Birthday' cards for Charter and tried to use our imagination to make something with 15 dots. We counted all the way up to 15 and ordered the numbers through fun activities. 

We all enjoyed the huge birthday cake on Thursday and had lots of fun on Friday singing in the 15th birthday concert and joining in the fun activities in the afternoon.

Happy Birthday Charter!

Healthy Me!

Last week we talked about being healthy and all the things we need to do such as, eating healthy foods, washing hands, exercising, brushing teeth and keeping clean.

In our activities we chose healthy foods such as salad for sandwiches, and fruit kebabs. We made a board of healthy foods vs not so healthy foods and had fun outside doing various exercises.
