We asked Mrs James if we could find out about the planets! So yesterday afternoon we completed different activities all about planets.
Mr Tyler told us lots of information about the planets and showed us the order they come in in relation to the sun.
We then went outside and we pretended to be different planets orbiting the sun.
We also ordered the planets according to the distance from the sun.
We have even painted the planets, we will soon have a display showing the different sizes and colours.
We used Space books to investigate what the planets look like as well as look at pictures of astronauts and rockets.
For our health and wellbeing work we had a circle time about our emotions. Sometimes we feel happy, sad, excited, worried and many other emotions. We decided to write some of our worries on the playground with water. It was so warm last Wednesday that the sun dried up the water and our worries disappeared!
Then we used natural materials to create artwork of who can help us when we are worried. We had pictures of people in our families, our friends and adults at school.
We created some great artwork.
It was so warm that our worries dried up before we had finished writing them!
As a class we talked about how worried we were on our first day of school. We quickly realised that our class are a team and we all made some friends. Some of us recognised each other from nursery. The adults also made us feel welcome.
Our challenge was to work together to build a Space Station. We used the big wooden blocks and the tyres.
Here we are in the control room.
We made simple rockets using paper, straws and some puff!
We decorated them and had competitions to see which rocket could go the furthest.
