This week the children have taken an interest in space! The interest started when a couple of children wanted to make rockets, so I provided lots of junk material, glue, paper and celloptape so they could explore this further.
I used the children’s interest in rockets to develop their number and letter recognition by building their own rocket using letters from their name and numbers 1-5 and 1-10.
The children talked about their rockets going to the moon and Mars, this took on an interest about planets. We looked at books and videos online to find out information about the planets and what they looked like. We then created our own using lots of different materials and tools to create our own solar system.
