Welcome to Lightning Class
Our Teacher is Miss Yates and our Special Support Assistant is Miss Galbraith.
This morning we wrapped up warm and went to play in the snow. We don't often get snow so it was very exciting! We built a new snow friend to join our class. We hope he doesn't melt!
We had been on a spring walk last week but now we think it is still definitely winter.
This half term we have been learning about Explorers. We found out about Neil Armstrong, Amelia Earhart and Christopher Columbus.
We designed and made explorer vehicles that we could use on the moon. We had to be very careful when we were using the saw!
We have been trying really hard with our handwriting this half term and Miss Yates is very proud of how neat our writing is getting.
We ended the half term with a fantastic explorer dress up day! We tried lots of fun activities including investigating moon sand, writing like an astronaut, making a moon picture, designing an alien and building a rocket.
What an exciting half term we have had! It has been very busy. We enjoyed learning about bonfire night with some line art; we dressed up for Children in Need and made spotty biscuits; we wrote Thank You letters to the Brave Soldiers on Remembrance Day; we tried yoga with Ash; we went on a phonics treasure hunt; we learnt about Jack and the Beanstalk; we wrote instructions; we did a pea and snot experiment; we learnt our Nativity and impressed Miss Yates with a fantastic performance; we made Christingles and sang beautiful songs; finally we had a fun Christmas Party with a special visitor who we sang Jingle Bells to!
Not to forget we have looked after one of Santa's Elves. Flash has been to visit most days with an exciting letter and kindness certificates.
Merry Christmas from Lightning Class!
We have made a great start to the year - take a look!
