Hello and welcome to Ladybird Class.

Mrs Taylor and Mrs Chadwick teach us, along with Mr Lloyd this year.

So far, this year we have had great fun.  We have been on a huge double decker coach to the Chichester Planetarium to learn all about space.  We got to sit in the dome and it was so dark!  We saw constellations, the space station and the sun and moon rising and setting in the sky above us.

We researched the 1969 moon landing and read a class story about an adventure on the moon.  We were even able to invent our own ending to this story as Mrs Taylor stopped reading on a cliffhanger!

We made rockets, and paper plate planets as well as a clay and natural material alien in Forest School lessons.

To finish this half term, we have been learning all about Kenya in Languages Week.  We have learnt a Swahili song and tried to count to 10 in Swahili too.  To celebrate all our learning our families came to see us do our Maasai Warrior dance in the hall in our red outfits, complete with Maasai necklaces and bracelets.  We then enjoyed some yummy mandazis (Kenyan doughnuts) and bananas with orange slices.  Yum!

What a busy first half term we have had.   Next half term-Nativity!
