Around Gravesend we go!
In term 2 we will be starting our learning journey finding out information about our local area of Gravesend.
We will be going on local school walks around the school grounds and learning how to use directional language.
We will also be learning to use geographical vocabulary to refer to physical features, for example hills and forests. We will also be looking at human features such as houses and shops.
To immerse the children into their learning we will be learning about local history, specifically looking at Pocahontas. We will also be walking to the famous Pocahontas statue and planning the route there before we go.
We will be focusing on a story called Beegu which is about a mysterious creature getting lost in a big city. We will be helping Beegu find his way home and focusing on feelings such as feeling worried, scared, lost and anxious. We will be learning how to overcome these emotions.
It has been reported that there has been a crash landing at Shears Green Infant School!
A loud bang was heard and when Class 6 nervously went to investigate, we found things were not as they should be in the Jubilee Garden.
The first thing we noticed was that there was green shiny slime everywhere!
We wondered what it was!
We went outside with our cameras and magnifying glasses to help us look deeper at the clues. We searched everywhere in the Jubilee garden.
As we were following the clues we found a spaceship. We tried to explain what could have happened and who the spaceship belonged to. We asked Ms Heartland and Mrs Spokes lots of questions.
We also found a footprint on the tree and some alien goo. There was even an apple that had been eaten and then we found both parts of the spaceship. First we spotted the Landing Pad leaning against the tree and when we looked up into the apple tree, there it was - an alien spaceship. We were all so excited we started screaming. There was a little alien inside the craft. Suddenly, the spaceship lit up! Oh no, was it going to take off again?
