Year 1 children at Lime Tree Primary School can be forgiven for spending a lot of time looking up at the stars as they dream of zooming to the moon.
Space has been the theme of the term so far, with a visit to the planetarium and the reported crash landing of an alien craft being the starting point for their exciting learning.
“The topic has really caught their imagination,” said class teacher Mrs Brown. “The children found the wreckage of the flying saucer and various other clues to help them discover what might have happened, but they’ve not yet found the aliens. In the meantime, they’ve written incident reports and filmed news reports about the incident.’’
“Our topics are completely cross curricular and there have been lots of opportunities to develop the children’s design and technology skills; building space buggies from junk and designing prototypes of lunar buggies to rival the best from NASA’’
“In February, we’re hosting a family learning event where the children and parents can experience star gazing and scientific investigations. The Fantastic finish to our topic is an exciting space race, including a race on– what else– space hoppers!,” Mrs Brown continued.
"The children at Lime Tree are dazzling us with their knowledge and imagination . As Buzz Lightyear would say, to the classroom –and beyond.”
