Last week we were looking at Space. We turned the role play area into a space rocket and the children took it in turns to use the controls. They loved using their imaginations and talking between themselves about where they were going.
We sung ‘Five Litle Men in a Flying Saucer’ and counted aliens together.
At the craft area we made pictures of space using black paper and chalk. We also created moon pictures using our sticking skills.
At circle time we talked about space and the planets. We also named some of the planets and their positions.
On Wednesday we all left the hall to meet the local firefighters. The children had the opportunity to climb inside the cab, use a hose, look at all the equipment and try on their hats and boots. The children asked lots questions and learnt about being a firefighter.
In the garden we’ve been enjoying using our bubble machine!
