Space themed day

This week the children thoroughly enjoyed their Space themed day linked with our current curriculum topic for November light and dark.

For our space themed day the children enjoyed exploring with awe and wonder a range of activities including their sensory texture space tuff tray, making 3D rockets using soft play, making papier Mache planets and researching all about Space, planets and stars through a range of books and short educational clips.

The children demonstrated high levels of interest and fascination and extended their interests further by using the letters of their name to make their name rockets, going for a moon walk and using junk modelling items to make their own rockets.

We focused on the “Whatever next” story and had a puppet show for all rooms with props and songs.

EYFS – Expressive arts and design – Being imaginative 30-50months “Uses available resources to create props to support role-play.”
