Science – Alien Crash Landing

On Friday, Year 1 discovered a crash landing in their outdoor area. After some investigating they found out an alien had landed and had left a message for them. The alien would like to find out about animals and humans and has set the children tasks to help the alien learn more. All the children were excited to get started and are looking forward to sharing their new knowledge with the alien!

Star of the Week

Well done Ella R for being the star of the week. This was awarded for an improved attitude to your learning and showing lovely friendship skills. Well done Ella.


This term we have been learning more about algorithms.

We have made algorithms using our laptops, looking at how the instructions we give allow the object to move across the map. We have also looked at what to do if we make a mistake and how we can ensure we provide the computer programme with the correct instructions.

Over the last few weeks, we have completed a range of levels and by the end we were able to correctly deliver the post to the right houses.
