Your children were so enthusiastic about their rocket making for fireworks night that we couldn't resist extending this by taking a deviation from our planned light and dark activities to Zoom off into Space.

One of the stories we have been reading  is Aliens love underpants....Our children noticed that one little Alien gets left behind in the boy's pants drawer, this helped us discuss keeping safe near our adults, how the Alien might feel and devise ways of getting him back to his space ship!

We have made a super sized rocket ship that we can climb into, planet earth pictures using a variety of textures, a variety of aliens and  had spaced themed snacks!

We have explored vocabulary such as galaxy, planet, crater, space buggy ( not the same as a dolls or babies buggy) using our facts about space and the moon book.

Thank you Poppets children for a fantastic week.
