With a very hands on focus, we will have a different interactive experience each week and learn how to make or create something new.
Children will learn about space- including the planets in our solar system, stars, moons, black holes, galaxies, and a range of vocabulary surrounding the topic of Space. We will start by planning how to make our own night sky in a tent. Using the constellations app - we can look for different stars and project images onto the tent. They will learn the order of the planets and a bit about each planet - they will then choose their favourite one and we will use paper maché and craft materials to create our own Solar system. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of humans landing on the moon, the group will try to recreate the scene. Learning about all the contributing factors about what makes a planet inhabitable - they will create their own planet and make a poster about how the planet would look and how it would work.
