Blast Off!

This week we had a “blast” learning about space. We started our week by creating an inquiry web where the children shared their knowledge about outer space and our solar system. The Early Starts had so much fun pretending to be space explorers in our “Rocket Ship” Dramatic Centre and digging around in our green “alien” sand in the Sensory Bin. They also enjoyed our “Space Measurement” lesson in math this week where we measured pictures of planets, asteroids and comets. But a highlight of the week was performing our very own balloon rocket launch out in the playground, complete with a countdown from ten to blast off. To see the excited faces as our “rocket ship” zoomed past everyone was out of this world!
