Our Visit to Greenwich Observatory.

This half term we have a new topic, ‘Up Above and Down Below’.  We visited Greenwich Observatory to explore the topic.  Our class friends, Harry Hornbill and Monkey, had told us they would meet us there!

Waiting for the bus.
On our way to the observatory.

We received a letter from Harry Hornbill. He had got lost on his way to the observatory.

We couldn’t spot Harry Hornbill, but we did find Monkey!

We explored the galleries. We tried to find out some of the answers to our questions about space.

We watched a show in the planetarium. It was about a Teddy who went in search of the Great Big Bear in the Sky.

We went down below the River Thames to look for Harry Hornbill. He wasn’t there, but we found some of his feathers, and a note telling us he would meet us back at school.
We rode home ‘up above’ on the top deck of the bus.

We enjoyed our time in Greenwich learning about Space, and observing our surroundings from ‘up above’ and ‘down below’.  Thank you to all of the parents who helped us have a fantastic day!

 

 

 

Our visit to the park!

We received a letter from Mummy and Daddy Bear telling us to meet them at the park to have some fun!

We talked about how we could stay safe on our visit.  We decided we needed to walk along the pavement with the help of some of our parents.  We held hands and wore bright jackets so we could be seen.IMG_0522IMG_0520

We were brilliant at walking safely and listening to our adults! We arrived safely at the park, ready for lots of fun.  We played on the equipment and took turns doing parachute games.

We joined the three bears for a snack and a story, before playing some more games and heading back to school.
