Whatever Next

This term we are learning all about Space. This week we focussed our learning on a fictional book called ‘Whatever Next’ we retold the story, put pictures in order, wrote lists of things we would take in a rocket, made intergalactic passports and decorated a giant rocket. We then watch a video of a real rocket taking off into space (which was very noisy!) and used our number lines to count back from 20-0. Try and practise at home counting back from 20-11 as most children found that a bit tricky! Next week we will be learning about space facts and will be using lots of non fiction texts and the internet to help us gather information. What would you like to know?

  1. Samuel asks:
    1. Who was the first person in space?
    2. Who was the first person on the moon?
    3. Do the planets always stay in the same order?
    4. Will RT be going into space this term?!!!

    • Hi Samuel
      Unfortunately we won’t be going into space as it would cost millions of pounds and I don’t have any astronaut friends to take us. We could go in our imaginations though and if you change your mind about being a tram driver maybe you could be an astronaut instead when you grow up! We’ll find out the answers to the other questions next week!
