Blast off to space!

Happy Wednesday to you all. I hope you have had a fun week so far. Here are further ideas to support your child's learning and we hope you have lots of fun trying them. 

Remarkable Rockets

●Use junk modelling or craft items you have around your house to create your own rocket. Toilet roll or kitchen roll tubes are a good starting point. You could have rocket races in the garden:

○Tie a string up at an angle or use the washing line.

○Blow up a balloon and sellotape it to your rocket. Hold the end of the balloon but do not tie it.

○Let the balloon go and watch your rocket fly!

Make a Textured Planet

●Work with your child to create a replica of a planet. You could papier mache a balloon, or colour, paint or stick bits of materials on to the card to create textured effects. 

Explore Space Online

●Support your child in looking at the Earth from space using the Google Earth programme and identifying simple features such as water.

●Can you find your home? What does your child notice about the surrounding area?

Phone Home

Create a space phone with your child using items from around the home. Get them to practise forming numerals correctly to create the buttons.

Make a space phone book to support role-play. Ask your child to draw a picture of a different alien on each page and write a phone number for them.

Have a Space Themed Party/Picnic

●Support your child to use tin foil to create shiny space suits for their teddies and dolls. They could have a space-themed teddy bears' picnic afterwards where they share the biscuits in the next activity!

Make yummy star biscuits to share at the picnic. Click here (or go to http://saucepankids.com/recipe/simple-shortbread-biscuits/) to find instructions on how to support your child in making simple star biscuits. 

Art

can you paint a picture like Van Gogh's Starry night? My daughter tried to recreate it at the weekend. 

​The children in school have made these Space themed rings out of paper plates this week.
