In Bubble A, Freddie used the magnets this week to create a rocket.

Whilst looking at a book, a few children noticed all of the planets. They worked together to create their own planets which were hung from the ceiling.

Freddie then decided to create another rocket using recycled materials. Josie thought this was a great idea and decided to create one too.

Josie and Aarron then used cartons to represent the planets for their gingerbread men. They created stars and fireballs using foil. Then they used all of these props to role-play. Eden and Dannika then joined in too.
