We hope you’ve had a fantastic holiday and Christmas. This half term our topic is SPACE. Tell us what you already know about Space or something that you would like to find out. Create your own rhyme or song to help to remember the names and order of the planets in our solar system. You will even get the chance to meet a real astronaut!
Look at the pictures taken from the book ‘Me and You’, based on the traditional tale of ‘Goldilocks’.

Next week we will be reading some of the different Mr Men stories and comparing the characters. Which Mr Men or Little Miss character you would be similar to? Here is a picture of Little Miss helpful. Which other adjectives could you use to describe her?

Miss Petty, Mr Blackburn and Miss Schack would like to apologise for the cancelation of the Year 1 trip to Cannon Hall Farm due to the snowy weather. We are hoping to rearrange it very soon, so try not to be too disappointed! Make the most of the snow; build a snowman, make a snow angel, go for a walk, explore and see what things you notice! Maybe you can find some footprints or animal prints…who might they belong to? Use your imagination! Please tell us how you have been enjoying the wintery weather in the comments section and share your snowy selfies (please ask your grown ups first)! We can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to, have fun!
Even the sheep are snowy!
On Friday, we had a whole day where we learnt all about the different job roles in school and in our local area. We thought about the different skills and qualities you’d need for the different jobs and discussed what we might like to be when we grow up. Here are a few photos of what we got up to!
