Reception's Rocket Week

Reception have come to the end of their space topic which was enormous fun.

Making rockets Making rockets Making Rockets

Rocket WeekWonderful rockets were made from copious amounts of junk; aliens in flying saucers took over our classroom and knew nothing about numbers, counting or patterns! So the children had to show them – the favourite being doubling. Each child had to show an alien how to double quantities; of course the aliens who love underpants chose to put spots onto their favourite pair of pants!

Rocket Week

In literacy the class learnt how to make a list and practised their writing and letter formation to write a list of things to take up in a rocket.  We had fun trying to walk like an astronaut and loved the dressing up box and our makeshift rocket but best of all was splatter painting to make an intergalactic galaxy!
