Telescopes, Constellations and Astronauts!

Telescopes, Constellations and Astronauts!

Reception really enjoyed taking part in another Erasmus project celebration, Space Day! All of the children looked fantastic and were very keen to get involved in all of the space activities! Some children made alien masks, other split pin astronauts and some even made space themed stick puppets!

We enjoyed looking at the night sky and discovered that some stars make patterns that we call Constellations. We looked at some of the most famous Constellations like ‘The big dipper’ and ‘Orion’. We made our own space paintings by flicking paint from our brush and then added our own Constellation to our paintings. We each made our own telescope and used them to explore our wonderful paintings.

Space Day in Year 5

Space Day in Year 5

Year 5 thoroughly enjoyed Space Day this week as part of our schools Erasmus project. The children enjoyed singing space songs, writing space poetry, dressing up and creating their own planet with an orbiting astronaut or rocket. Well done Year 5.
