Week beginning 17th September


We will be watching a short film based on the story The Way Back Home. This is about a small child who makes a rocket and flies to the moon. There he meets an alien who has crashed onto the surface. They become friends and help each other to get back to their respective homes.

We will be using our knowledge of phonics to invent alien names, we will be describing different planets and the aliens we might meet on them.



Our focus this week will be reading writing and ordering numbers to 20, reasoning about number and predicting the next number in a sequence.


Topic work

We will be using our knowledge of shapes to help us design and construct a model spaceship. We will be learning about famous astronauts, especially Peggy Whitson who recently became the oldest female to go into space and the Nasa astronaut who has been in space for longer than any other.
