We have begun our mini topic on space and the children are really enthusiasic about learning as much as they can. They have been playing in our new role play space ship and reading in our darkroom reading tent. They have been enjoying the book, Whatever Next, and acting out, writing lists of things we might take to space, and managing to read parts of the book independently. In maths the children have been working on sharing. They have done practical work based on the space theme and are beginning to work out problems using pictures instead of objects.
