Welcome to Cosmic Comets!

We are a happy and friendly class who always follow the school motto -

'Only our best will do'

Our new topic is......

In Science this week, we tested our boats. We were glad we decided to make them out of plastic, because they floated. 

In Literacy this week, we became pirates. We wrote about the jobs we did during our day as a pirate. Look at our writing below! 

This week we have enjoyed sharing our pirate topic books from the library. 

This week we became pirates in Literacy. We began by thinking about what pirates look like and what they do. Take a look at our writing below. 

Today we enjoyed the engage experience for our new topic 'Land Ahoy'. We made pirate hats, eye patches and telescopes. We then went on a hunt for some treasure. 

This week in maths, we are beginning to learn about multiplication and division. Today we practised counting in 2's. 

Over the next few weeks we are taking part in a whole school project, all about the 'Here We Are' book. We are using this book to help us settle back into school, with an investigative and creative approach to learning. 

This week in maths (year 1), we revisited counting by making 10. We used tens frames, number lines and bead strings. 

This week we have enjoyed learning about the key words 'EQUALITY', 'FAIRNESS' AND 'INCLSIVITY'. We  discussed how we are all different but we all belong in Cosmic Comets. 

World Book Day

We have had a fantastic day in Cosmic Comets, sharing our favourite book characters and getting creative.

This week in Maths we are learning all about teen numbers. 

This week we have enjoyed making dinosaur sock puppets. Next week, we are going to be writing instructions to match the steps.

Take a look at our fantastic sentences about Mary Anning. We learnt about Mary Anning’s childhood and her discovery of fossils. 

This week in Literacy we have been writing LOST posters for our missing dinosaurs. Can you help us find them?

In Science we have started to research fossils. We have found out that fossils are remains of animals that lived millions of years ago. 

This week we have enjoyed our first visit to the forest this year. We used sticks to make the shapes we have been learning about in maths and shared a dinosaur story. 

In Literacy we have created non-fiction booklets about hermit crabs. We found out some amazing facts about hermit crabs!

Take a look at our star writer work!

Last week we designed new creatures by choosing different body parts from our favourite sea creatures. In D&T we made our wonderful new sea creatures by using a range of tools and carefully working with a partner. 

In Maths we have started using the part, whole model to help us with our number bonds and addition fact families. 

This week we have started to learn about hermit crabs. In ART and Design,  using play dough, we created hermit crab homes.

In Art and Design we have focused on using the correct tools to create our rainbow fish paintings.

This week we are writing instructions for how to make a clay fish. 

Every week we are adding drawings to our Beachcomber booklets. 

In Maths we have been finding one less and one more of numbers to 20.

In Science we have been researching what we might find in rock pools.

In Maths we have been using numicon and cubes to count forwards and backwards.

In PSHE we have been practising how to be a good team and share books together. 

Cosmic comets have had a beach experience this morning and had the chance to explore lots of seaside activities.  They finished the morning off with a visit to the ice-cream shop!
