We've had another brilliant week in school!
Last week was 'Out of this World!' Aliens contacted us and questioned us all about the continents and oceans of the world and asked us to draw a map identifying which continent we lived in and which ocean we were near to. They kept us busy by asking us to draw maps containing geographical features of the school grounds which showed the best location for them to land their space ship. Finally the aliens arrived!!! With a bump... we've found the wrecked space ship but not the aliens...yet...

In our maths lessons we are learning about measurement this week. We will be sorting objects in relation to the unit of measurement they are measured in. Then we will be estimating the weight and length of objects before measuring them practically. After that we will be measuring liquid in a jug and reading the scale to see how many ml or litres it holds.
Topic - Geography
Following last weeks exciting work we are hoping that the aliens will visit us soon. To prepare we are going to improve our Mapping skills this week. We will learn about drawing aerial views of our classroom, move on to creating aerial views of the school and then learn about compasses and how to use them! To finish the week we hope that the aliens will find our classroom and tell us about their home planet and it's geographical features.
