Rockets kicked off May with a fun visit from the RNLI! Jacqui came to tell us all about being safe at the beach, the numbers to call if we are ever in trouble and we even got to try on their special uniform and wellies! She also gave us lots of tips for being safe in the sunshine; we need to slop on our sun cream and slap on our sunhats! As May has been very sunny, we have really enjoyed being out in the garden with our friends.

Our topic this month has been The Rainforest! We have thoroughly enjoyed this topic with lots of exciting activities. We got to make our very own huuuge leaf canopy with Richard; we scrunched up and glued down tissue paper to achieve this. With Abi, we got to make slithery ssssnakes and zebra handprints. We also had a go at making rainbows by mixing colours! With Kristina, we looked at the many weird and wonderful animals of the rainforest such as tapirs, the dart tree frog, piranha’s, jaguars and many more. We coloured them in beautifully for our Rainforest display.

We have had a look into the four layers of the rainforest; we have learnt that the really tall trees are the emergent layer and the really small ones are on the forest floor. We have really enjoyed moving our bodies like the rainforest animals do… We moved super-fast like a cheetah, and super slow like a sloth! We even tried to be monkeys, attempting to eat bananas with our feet! We have been able to listen to the sounds of the rainforest using our speaker; we heard birds chirping and the big trees swaying.

Rockets have had some fantastic achievements this month! A really big well done to William B for achieving his Star of the Week certificate for settling into Rockets beautifully! Another big well done to Isla for earning her Handwriting Hero certificate for wowing all of us and being able to copy her name! Nathaniel has made some amazing progress this month with his lunch time stamp chart, and is looking forward to choosing his very own tiger sun hat. Big high fives for Kasen, Daisy and Harrison for achieving their 10 stamps this month. We are so proud of you, Rockets!
