We have had an exciting start to this half term – our theme is ‘To the moon and back’. Presently, our English is focussing on Star Wars and we have written vivid descriptive pieces for the planet Dagobah, we intend to use this experience to improve our story writing skills and then we will be using a green screen app to perform parts of our stories.
We are enjoying our daily guided reading sessions – this term our book is Cosmic by Frank Cottrell Boyce.
It’s one giant leap for all boy-kind in Frank Cottrell Boyce’s out-of-this-world story: Cosmic.
Liam is too big for his boots. And his football strip. And his school blazer. But being super-sized height-wise has its advantages: he’s the only eleven-year-old to ever ride the G-force-defying Cosmic rollercoaster – or to be offered the chance to drive a Porsche. Long-legged Liam makes a giant leap for boy-kind by competing with a group of adults for the chance to go into space. Is Liam the best boy for the job? Sometimes being big isn’t all about being a grown-up.
During our P.E. lessons we will be completing circuit training and fitness sessions to emulate the training that astronauts undergo before their missions. We hope to monitor improvements in our fitness levels.
Next week we will need empty, lidded jam jars for a space art activity – photos to follow of our results.
Have a cosmic weekend.
