Into Space

We have loved the start of our time in Year 1 so far and we have been so busy. As part of our ‘Space Topic’, we have been learning about the story ‘Whatever Next’. We have also designed our own rockets to go to the moon and have even made our own astronaut food in a bag so that it wouldn’t float if we were in space. In maths, we have been helping the aliens read, write and order numbers.
