Meet the Teacher 2019
Our first topic is called Beegu.
Beegu is a story about an alien who visits Earth, by author Alexis Deacon.
Today we learnt that our special visitor from outer space is called Beegu. So far, we have designed some 'Lost' posters to try to find her, written her some messages, built some rockets out of junk and made some space buggies out of K'nex in case she makes it back to her home planet. We have also enjoyed using beads and sequins to design some galaxy pictures and practising some space-themed yoga poses. Take a look at some of the first pictures below!
The children all came back excited from the summer this week and ready for their learning. As well as writing about our holidays and practising our counting, we made an exciting discovery. Our very own alien has crash-landed in the Year 1 area! On Friday afternoon we found parts of her spaceship, photos of her family, footprints and even spaceship fuel. Look back soon to find out what we discover about our special visitor in our learning this week.
