We read the story Sharing a Shell by Julia Donaldson and we talked about how to be a good friend. The children came up with lots of great ideas like listening, sharing, encouraging, taking turns and being kind. The children each made a sparkly fish for our display.
Year 2 joined in with the rest of school to wear odd socks as a way of celebrating that we are all different but equally valued.
We have been reading Way Back Home by Oliver Jeffers in which a boy takes his plane to the moon where he meets an alien. The alien wanted to go on a space walk but his space glove had a hole in it. The children had to think of ways to mend it and ways to test if it was airtight. We decided to test the glove using water as, ifwater leaked through, then the glove would not be airtight. The children had great fun testing the strength of plaster, sellotape and masking tape. They worked well in their groupsas discussing their reasons why the glove still leaked.
