Studley

Infants' School

Spring 1

We have had another fantastic half-term of learning!  Our topic was ‘To Infinity and Beyond’ so we have been learning about space and space travel. We have read lots of books together starting with our class book Dr Xargle and his strange school for aliens where they learned about how to look after human babies.  Our books have inspired our writing and we used Man on the Moon to write a diary for the main character Bob.

 

  

 

Our Space Cadet Day was a big highlight and we were so impressed by the children’s costumes!  They made some amazing jet packs and space shuttles from junk.

 

 

In History we have been finding out about the lives of significant people.  We looked at Neil Armstrong and the moon landings and we compared Mae Jemison who was the first African American woman in space.  This linked to another of our books ‘Look Up!’ about a little girl who wanted to be an astronaut

when she grows up. 

 

 

 

 

 In Maths we have been really busy identifying one more and one less and learning about tens and ones as well as counting in twos and fives. We have been using lots of maths equipment to help us understand and work independently. 

 

  

 

 

 

In Science we have carried on investigating materials and thinking about their properties.  We conducted experiments to see which materials would be best for making an umbrella.

 

 

We have also focused on our mental health and well-being which is so important to our happiness and ability to learn at school. We teach a Personal Social Health Education lesson each week and we talk to the children about recognising and naming their feelings and ways to manage difficult feelings like anger or sadness.

 

We have worked so hard and are all ready for a break at half-term! When we return we will welcome Pariss back from her maternity leave!
