The moon

 Over the past week we have been reading books about the moon and watching some utube clips of mans first walk on the moon. As we found out information we organised it by using a class Y chart. Before we wrote an information report about the moon we made a web sharing all the facts we knew about the moon. We each wrote an information report and drew our own little Y charts. Look out for some of us reading our information reports on the blog in the near future.

Miss Linehan from room 2 showed us how to make these cool moons so we each made one.

On Friday when Sophie's Nana and Grandad came to pick her up at the end of the day we invited them into our classroom and asked them where they were when Neil Armstrong took that first step on the moon. Thank you for sharing your experience of this historic moment with us.

The web

As we explore the topic of the sun, earth and moon we recalled all the facts we could remember about the sun. To do this we sat in a circle and rolled a ball of wool to each other recalling a fact before we rolled it. It was a lot of fun, we remembered a lot of facts and made a rather impressive web.

Butterflies in the butterfly house

With the butterfly house open all week we were excited on Friday to find not 1 butterfly in the house but 5. Each of them were busy laying eggs and we were delighted. Before long we will have a lot of caterpillars to watch grow. Yippee - the life cycle of the butterfly has begun.

We are planning to tidy up the butterfly house in the week ahead - pulling out the old cosmos plants and putting some more soil in before we plant some more cosmos for the butterflies to feed on in the weeks to come. We are also looking to plant some new swan plants so the caterpillars will have plenty to eat!!
