Acorn Class 14th- 18th February 2022

Topic

This week, we have been learning about astronauts. We talked about how the training you have to do to be an astronaut and what it is like to live in space. We talked about how there is no gravity! We learned about some famous astronauts including Tim Peak, Neil Armstrong and Mae Jemison. We watched a video of Tim Peak preparing his breakfast in the space shuttle and decided to do a little experiment of our own. We made our own astronaut food! 

Literacy

We have been focusing on the story ‘Whatever Next!’ this week. We discovered a box of story props and enjoying using them to act out the story. We then learnt how to retell the story using actions- we practised lots and lots to get it just right! Finally, we drew our own story maps.
