In Literacy, we have been looking at letters. During our first lesson on this genre, we looked at the features of a letters and used the features to help us sequence the letter. Since that lesson, we have written several letters, one to Plop, one to Traction man and the final one to Santa.
The children have really enjoyed learning about space through their literacy work and during history. In History, they have found out about the ‘Space Race’ and they have practised their skills in Chronology by putting the events of the Space Race in order.
Within literacy the children researched all about Mae Jemison with their learning partners. They then fed back to the class all their findings.
They enjoyed finding out about Mae's life that as a class they though about what their journey would be like if they were to travel to space. As class they created a text map ready to write a letter about their journey.
