All about SPACE!

Our topic this term has been all about space. At the start we had a visiting planetarium and a lady called Sian told us all about different things in space. We had to crawl inside the planetarium and it was quite dark inside!


We found out about all the things in our Solar System, the planets, stars and galaxies. We learnt about comets and meteors (shooting stars) and found out about some constellations in the sky. We designed our own constellations of our initials and made some shooting stars with exploding tails!  We learnt about the Moon and when Neil Armstrong landed on the Moon. We made our own flags in moonrock. We used the computer programme Dazzle to make our own space pictures. We made models of rockets, moon buggies and aliens with our construction kits. We made plasticine stars to help us with our number work.


We read a story, "Whatever Next!" about a bear who travels to the moon. We wrote about what we might take on a trip to the moon. We also had a rocket ship in our role play area and set off on many trips around the universe to explore different planets, collect moon rocks and have close encounters with aliens. Luckily we didn't have too many splash landings!
