Last week, Hazel class visited Southend Museum and planetarium, supporting and enhancing their Space topic. One group headed straight to the planetarium and engaged in learning about the solar system and the stars and constellations, such as the Big Dipper and Orion's belt. The other group spent their time in the museum downstairs, researching the various displays and exhibits; taking advantage of an uncrowded gallery. Halfway through the morning the groups swapped over and completed the other half of their activity.
I'd like to extend a big thank you to all the parents who help with transport, as well as those that volunteered and were not needed on this particular occasion; it is very much appreciated.
Another activity children took part in was the traditional Christmas hoop making; creating a festive hanging mobile. Hazel class' finished hoop, included an iceberg and penguins made from socks (thank you for supplying them).
This week is test week, so children have completed their termly assessments.
