Welcome to Asters Class
ABOUT OUR CLASS
In Asters this half term we are asking the questions 'Where will our time machine take us?'. We have had lots of amazing time machines and enjoyed sharing them with the rest of the class. We have got Mrs Norton covering Mrs Ganguly on a Thursday (usually) and Mrs White supporting the class on a Wednesday.

We have had a great start to the half term learning a variety of different things. In maths we have been learning about place value and representing numbers and we have been linking our knowledge of Time travel into our literacy work. We have done a fantastic experiment to create a rocket fountain with a bottle of coke and are designing and making our own rockets like Neil Armstrong to send to the moon.
In art we have been learning to paint in the style of Quentin Blake and about the grades of pencil to create a sketch of Roald Dahl. We have also learnt about tints and shades of colour so we can create a painting of the moon.
We have participated in Stand up for Derbyshire where we made 50% of our day active and also enjoyed our cake sale for Macmillan to raise money for the charity.
We look forward to what the rest of the term brings ....
