Welcome to Rockets class

Our current topic: 'Ice Worlds'

spring term
stunning start
When Rockets class came back to school on Thursday 3rd January they discovered that their whole classroom had turned into an icy artic landscape! They had great fun exploring the new igloo role play corner, looking at pictures of arctic ice worlds and thinking about wow words to describe what they saw. They came up with some fantastic ideas! We are all looking forward to finding out more about the North pole and the people and animals who live there.
autumn term
marvellous middle

"It has been such a busy week in Rockets! Today we went on a visit to Pizza Express. It was the 'marvellous middle' to our 'Here I am' topic and built upon our learning in class, where we have been discussing what we like to eat. The behaviour from all the Rockets was excellent and they listened carefully to instructions for making a pizza. They then worked hard to make their own pizza, shaping the dough, adding tomato sauce and sprinkling on cheese. All the Rockets had a fantastic time and we hope the children and parents enjoyed eating their pizzas! A huge thank you to Pizza Express in Cranleigh for providing us with this amazing learning experience."

Bonfire Night
Today 5th November,  in Rockets we talked about bonfire night and discussed our own experiences of fireworks. We discussed what we could see and hear and wrote a description of the fireworks using exciting words! Here are a selection...
Anti-bullying Week
Rockets celebrated the start of the school's 'Anti-bullying' week by wearing odd socks! Over the week Rockets will be discussing how we are all unique and special in our own ways. We will also be exploring how we can be a good friend to others.

Our role play this half term is a home corner. Can you dress the baby? Can you dry the dishes? and can you use the cooker? ...    

Rockets have begun their topic 'Here I Am!' by bringing in a treasure chest of items that are special to them. They have spent time sharing the objects with their class mates and then they drew and labelled their favourite objects and people to create a map of their heart.
