A galaxy of stars!


This week we are reading the book 'How to catch a star'. We have been making our own galaxy of stars today, using cut out star stencils and paint. It was a very tricky activity, because we had to keep our stars really still, whilst painting over them. We were all very resilient though, and didn't give up. Take a look...

Today in Bramcote, we became shape detectives and took our maths learning outside. We were amazed to see how many different 2D shapes we found. We practised using our maths WOW words to describe them. Take a look...

Exploring shapes and careful counting


This week we have been busy exploring shapes by building rockets and doing very careful counting at the maths table, the water area and outside. Great work everyone!

This week in our number time sessions, we have been learning the names of 2D shapes. We have also been learning how to describe the 2D shapes using lots of interesting wow words. We made some shape pictures today and used the words curved, straight, sides, corners, to describe our pictures.

Our visit to Kimberley Library


We had a lovely time today visiting Kimberley Library. Steve, the librarian, read us some space themed stories, and his favourite story about a skeleton in a cupboard! We had a look around the library and read books about dinosaurs, monsters, superheroes and more!

Planet paintings.


We have been creating some amazing planet paintings today. We popped a marble into some paint and placed it on our planet shape on a tray. We then moved it around [being careful not to lose the marble!] and mixed the colours to create some super patterns. Take a look.....

We launched our new topic today, 'Lost in Space!'. We read the story 'Roaring Rockets' and talked about the different things we would need to take with us if we were going on a journey into space. The children came up with some super ideas for their list writing.  We created some space paintings too, using some sparkly, metallic paints. Well done, Bramcote Class, you have all made a great start to the new school year!
