All about Tim Peake and Space!

Our influential person this week is the British astronaut Tim Peake. Well done for sharing facts about him for homework. You can view them here.

This week we have been reading and writing about the planets of the Solar System:

We used chalk, pastels, glitter and collage to create these amazing Space pictures:

We learnt that astronauts eat wraps in Space because bread is too crumbly!
Here is a video of astronaut Chris Hadfield making a tasty tortilla snack!


Tim Peake must’ve liked the look of our tortillas, as he gave us a virtual thumbs up on our Twitter page!

We have also been using positional language to describe where planets, spaceships and aliens are!

Crazy about Chameleons!

This week we have been learning all about chameleons. We read information about them, wrote facts and created lots of lovely chameleon artwork!

Did you know that a chameleon has a long, sticky tongue for catching its prey? It can change colour for camouflage and also when it feels angry, scared or poorly. Do you know any interesting facts about chameleons? Please leave them as a comment.

What do you think of our work?

We wrote in role as the animals, using ‘and’, exclamation marks and some of us even used speech marks! We had to make sure our sentences rhymed and we even made up our own rhymes!

Then we used Chatterpix on the iPads to talk in role as the animals:
