It was the last week of our Space topic this week and we continued with Aliens Love Underpants. We also talked about Valentines Day and made Valentines cards for our families.
The children talked about people they love and drew their families. We discussed how the aliens love underpants but we love our families more. The children then explored colour mixing to make a handprint heart.
The children then got to design their own underpants. Some were very colourful! The children are really hoping the aliens don’t steal them.
This week we focussed on 1:1 counting and used our finger numbers to sing the song ‘5 little men in a flying saucer’
We also looked at 2D shapes looking closely at the sides and edges. The children used shapes to paint a rocket.
Understanding the World
This week we investigated how to make the stars light up in our Glow in the dark Stars experiment. The children looked inside the box to see some stars but once in the dark they couldn’t be seen. We used a torch to ‘charge’ the stars and watched what happened.
