AUTUMN TERM Second Half 2018

Well if a mystery were ever going to appear in school it certainly did on our first day back! Where did this door come from and where does it go?

We pulled, pushed and knocked on it but it would not open.  We speculated about where it might lead and created imaginary lands.  We made magic keys and wrote about the mystery door.  What an exciting way to start the term.

Our Toybox topic for the rest of this term starts with a trip to the Bridewell Museum to find out about Toys in the Past.

The new school year welcomes both Year 1 and year 2 to Jupiter Class.  We have begun with our STORYLAND topic and used Pie Corbetts Talk for Writing process to learn and innovate the Three Little Pigs. Versions included: Three Little Owls, Three Little Dinosaurs, Three Little Bunnies.  Watch out for the Big Bad Bat that might scratch your house down!
