Reception have zoomed into their new topic ‘SPACE’ at an incredible speed. They have begun to learn lots of interesting facts about the solar system. To strengthen hand muscles and develop scissor skills, the children cut out their own astronaut and used split pins to piece it back together again. In addition to this, they have also created their own planets using a ‘blow paint’ technique. For this, they used straws to blow the paint and change the effect it had on the paper. We have suspended homemade rockets from the ceiling. It was such a delight to see your child’s home creation and hear about how they created their rocket over the Christmas period.
