Welcome to Term 2.........
It has been a lovely start to Tem 2 in K2L. The children were happy to be reunited with their classmates and have settled back into the routine of school very easily.
Space Exploration and our Solar System is proving to be a very successful topic in K2L!
Last Wednesday, we watched a two minute clip of Neil Armstrong landing on the moon on our Smart board.
Here are just some of the comments from the children that came from a discussion immediately afterwards.
“Did you know that the first astronauts that went to the moon was a chimp?”
“The moon is really, really safe......some aliens can be dangerous.”
“There’s no gravity!”
“The backpack is to stop them floating away.”
“Earth isn’t that small (seeing it in the distance), it’s way bigger!”
“Saturn.....it looks like a slide.”
"Jupiter has a big storm on it, that's where the asteroids have landed."
"Jupiter has 16 moons."
Our favourite space song at the moment is called,
"Flying from the sun to the stars"
