Spring 1B - Moon Zoom !
Moon Zoom !
CRASH ! What's that in the playground ? Let's go outside and take a look. Stand back everyone - it looks like a UFO has crash-landed !
Find two who might have landed by exploring the craft and investigating scattered scientific specimens. Create a 'Welcome to Earth' box for an alien explorer. What can you put in it to help explain what life is like on our planet?
Would you like to be an astronaut? You'll need a pretty sturdy spacecraft if you do. Start off small by making an air-propelled rocket... WHOOOSH ! How far can you make it travel ?
Find out the names of the planets. There's Mercury, Neptune, Mars and ... do you know of any others ? I've forgotten the rest !
Then, an alien is found... Can you help get him home ? It's got the experts in a right kerfuffle. Professor Pong doesn't know what to do !
Are you ready for your take off Year 2 ?
Hold tight... 5-4-3-2-1... LIFT OFF

In maths we are learning all about hundreds, tens and ones. 100, 50, 6 is the same as 156.
In science we carried out an experiment ... could the force of the balloon move the straw along a piece of string?
Would it reach the end?
Did we carry out a fair test?
If you were a scientist, what experiment would you want to do?

The glockenspiels are so much fun! We are starting to get really good at playing them now :)

Can you follow the planet map using directional language?
Here is our balloon powered rocket experiment? Who do you think won? Boys or girls?
