Well done to Alex for getting our achievement certificate for super writing and trying to do more and more by himself!



In English, we have been writing our own new endings for the story 'How to Catch a Star' by Oliver Jeffers.  We came up with some amazing ideas, such as, climbing up Mount Everest, climbing a ladder, climbing up a giraffes neck and travelling in a hot air balloon. We have written a new version of the story.  Here is one of the examples, written by



Once there was a little boy.  He desperately wanted a star of his own.  He tried to catch one.  First he climbed a tall tree, but he couldn’t reach it.  Next he flew in his rocket, but the fuel ran out.  After that he tried to lasso the star, but it was too heavy.

Finally he climber Mount Everest.  He climbed up a ladder.  He went on his tip toes and he got the star! He climbed back down the ladder.  He climbed back down Mount Everest.  He went back home and went to bed. He felt happy!



In Maths, we have been learning about adding.  We have been using a numberline to add numbers together.  We have also been counting on and back from any number.



In Science, we are learning about materials and their properties. We have been investigating opaque and transparent materials.  We learnt that transparent meant we could see through it and opaque meant we could not see through it.  We decided that a spaceman would need an opaque spacesuit and a transparent helmet.



In topic, we have been consolidating our work on space travel.  We put the people and animals in the order that they went to space.


Have a lovely weekend.
