Lyrics for Starman by David Bowie


Didn't know what time it was and the lights were low
I leaned back on my radio
Some cat was layin' down some get it on rock 'n' roll, he said
Then the loud sound did seem to fade
Came back like a slow voice on a wave of phase haze
That weren't no D.J. that was hazy cosmic jive


There's a starman waiting in the sky
He'd like to come and meet us
But he thinks he'd blow our minds
There's a starman waiting in the sky
He's told us not to blow it
Cause he knows it's all worthwhile
He told me:

Let the children lose it
Let the children use it
Let all the children boogie


I had to phone someone so I picked on you
Hey, that's far out so you heard him too
Switch on the TV we may pick him up on channel two
Look out your window I can see his light
If we can sparkle he may…

During the Spring term we are all going to become adventures. We hope you will join us on our journey in to space, land and sea.  DT will play an important role in making our rockets that we will fire into space (look out for the videos).  Bob the Man on the Moon by Simon Bartram is currently the class text that we are reading and using in writing and guided reading. Click the book and listen to the story....


In maths we are  looking at numbers to 50, counting in 10s and 1s and measuring anything that we can find. Ireland class hope you all enjoy looking at what we achieve this term. 

Changes around the school - what can you see that has changed?

Making a Lunar Module for our rockets

Making the rocket boosters

Material hunt around school - look what we found.

Science - Investigation into properties of materials

Look out for the collage we have created of the school before the building work started....
