Year 1 investigate a mysterious crash landing on the school field

Some mysterious metal and foil objects landed in our school field this week. This caused a great deal of excitement with the children. Harriet thought that it was the cockpit of a spaceship that has landed from space. Lottie thought the crash landing looked like the inside of an alien rocket.

The children were relieved to hear that an alien had not landed on our school field and this excitement was created to introduce our new story, Beegu by Alexis Deacon. Children had the opportunity to create their own version of the story by ordering images before hearing the actual story. The children enjoyed being creative with their ideas and using their imaginations to create a beautiful story.

This week children have also been using their maths brains to count backwards and to understand that some numbers are made up of tens and ones. Children enjoyed making numbers out of dienes and discussing the number of tens and ones in a given number.
