Oh yes! ‘We’re off to look for aliens!’ The children arrived to find a letter from one of the aliens in the ‘Man on the Moon’ book. It invited the children to one of their secret parties on the moon, but promises, this time, all the litter will be collected after the party, to keep our environment clean and tidy. The children went straight to work and thought carefully about what alien they would like to be at the party.
In English, the children drew and described their alien character, using some interesting adjectives and descriptive phrases e.g. my alien has googly and springy eyes; its body is round with oozy slime. Following this lesson, we identified rhyming words in the book and created a rhyming poem about their aliens. Can your child remember their rhyme?
In Maths, we continued to practise our knowledge of mental and written subtraction methods. We also began to learn how to subtract using similar strategies. We will also be starting to learn about intervals and duration of time.
