Message from the Moon

Something very strange happened on the infant playground this morning!!

We went out for a quick bit of fresh air after assembly and George and Freddie noticed something that looked a little bit like a parachute hanging from one of the branches of the trees.  Hanging from the parachute was a pouch with something folded up in it, so we took a vote and nearly all of us thought we should look inside the pouch and see what it was.

Well….inside there was a note from Bob (the man on the moon) who was advertising for an assistant to help him on the moon!!! 

We were all very excited as the advert stated that free travel was included, so we all thought that must mean travelling by a rocket to space!  Most of us were very keen to find out more about the position of moon assistant so we went back to class, and using some pictures from the book ‘Man On The Moon’, we completed an inference task where we shared our ideas about what the duties of a moon assistant might be.

Well who knows what might happen next?  If there are no more blog posts next week, then maybe one of the KS1 staff will have applied for the position and got the job!

Woah where did that month go????

Not sure what happened there – but the month of December just flew by in KS1!!!

We have been so busy that we haven’t managed to keep on top of our blog, but before we start our blog posts for the New Year of 2019, we thought we would just say a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who reads our blog.  It would be lovely if in 2019 a few more of our followers could post a reply too – the children love to see what visitors to our blog think.
