This week the children have been learning about space, rockets, the role of an astronaut and some famous astronauts such as Neil Armstrong. The children have also talked about where they would like to go on adventure to, who they might meet in space, what they might need in space and what they would do when they arrive in space. They also really enjoyed watching astronauts walk on the moon and a Space Shuttle take off. Whilst choosing, lots of children have developed their scrunching skills by scrunching tin foil and gluing it onto a paper plate to make a moon and made their own rockets by decorating small plastic containers with feathers, paper, sequins and glitter. They also listened to a story called ‘Whatever Next’ and practised acting out the story using the story tray tuff spot. During PE this week, the children have explored different ways of moving to represent different space items and activities. For example, crouching down and leaping up like a rocket lifting off into space and large, slow steps like an astronaut walking on the moon.
