ALIEN CRASH LANDING!
1/3/17 - Today Pip the alien crash landed at our school! It was very exciting when we heard the noise of his space ship crashing and went to look for clues. Here is what happened in the words of the children...
"His spaceship crashed and I saw a basket of his food. There was a basket turned over of his food."
"Pip's spaceship landed at Earth. We heard a bang and a squeaky noise. We saw all the clues from the spaceship. We go to look for Pip and the spaceship."
"We were looking for Pip's space things because we wanted to fix his rocket for him. It crashed in to the window. We went to pick the bits of Pip's space rocket up."
"We heard Pip's spaceship had crash landed. We found it cause it smashed."
"Pip made a big noise because maybe he hurt himself. We had to pick the rocket up so the other children could play, so they don’t have to tidy up themself. Maybe we show Pip to all the Mummy’s and Daddy’s so they can see and maybe fix his rocket."
"Pip has broke his rocket. We heard a big bang. We found the rocket and put it back together."
"We heard a knock. We went outside to find clues. We found a cuboid. It was a rocket."
"Pip's spaceship landed and we heard a noise. We go and look for some clues and looked for Pip's spaceship. We found it in the kids playground, the big kids playground. There was a cone that looked like a spaceship."
"The rocket falled on the floor. We found some odd things like some of it is the wings from it. W-i-ng. We found the alien."
"Pip's spaceship crashed and we heard a big boom! And then we found some clues and then we found the spaceship. It was like a rocket. It crashed in to everywhere. Pip didn’t know which buttons to press."
"I heard a loud bang and we looked for clues and then we found Pip. His spaceship had crashed."
"His space rocket crashed. I even thought he had a cone on his head. We heard a big loud boom. We went out and looked for him. We found him in his space rocket and he got hit on his head."
"He just landed down on Earth. He wants to launch to the moon. We tidied up all the Pip things because we’re going to make a new spaceship for Pip."
"We got a letter. Miss McCarthy found a letter. When we were going home Miss McCarthy readed it and it had more slime on it. This morning we heard a loud noise, then we went out and put our coats on. We looked around for any more clues and we picked up some shiny things and they were all shiny silver and then we went to the next part and then we found Pip under his space helmet and then we went back in to put Pip in the reading area. Some of us went outside with Mr. Taylor and we putted all of Pip's space ship in a bin bag and we bringed it back to class."
"Pip's spaceship crashed in to our playground. We took him into our class and then we tidied up his spaceship so he could build his spaceship again."

First Ever Class Blog!
This is the first blog that has been written by the children (they tell me what to type) so that they can tell you what we have done during the week. Hopefully we will do one a week but if we are really busy we might not have time sorry! The blog will be great for getting children to reflect on their learning and developing their speech and how they explain different things. Hopefully over the year you will see the blogs becoming more detailed and begin to include lots of interesting stories.
This week we have been reading stories. We read a dinosaur one. We read one with no pictures and it's funny because it makes us laugh.
We've been doing phonics...s,t,a,p. We've learned our numbers, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and 0.
Today we went to the fruit shop. I like plums and I love apples. We made a fruit salad.
Have a good weekend
Our first day at school!
All of the children have been fantastic on their first day at school. We are so proud of how they have settled in and made new friends. It has been lovely to see how confident they are in exploring their new classroom. A big thank you to the families too who have helped them to settle in quickly by allowing the children to come in quickly and without many tears. We appreciate how hard it is for you to let them go as well but you have all been amazing the last 2 days as well. We are already looking forward to next week when all of the children will be in together. There may still be some wobbles along the way and potential for a few tears as tiredness sets in but I am confident that by working together as we did this week we can make this a quick and successful transition for the children.
Have a fantastic weekend everyone. See you Monday!
