Blast off in Reception

In Reception this week, we enjoyed blasting off to space.  We read ‘ The Way Back Home’ by Oliver Jeffers which inspired us to learn more about space.  For homework, the children learnt a space fact and then enjoyed sharing them at group time.  We found out about stars and made our own constellation pictures .We enjoyed role playing in our space rocket too.   After looking at the work of the artist ‘Peter Thorpe,’ we were inspired to create our own space pictures.  In literacy, we wrote descriptions of aliens using our phonics to write simple sentences.  Outside we had great fun firing the straw rockets that we made and we made a balloon rocket that travelled along a string.  Take a look at the photos to see some of the fun we had.
