Off to the moon…..

This week the children have been working hard to make their class moon picture.  They painted on sand to make the moon’s surface; designed their own aliens; made planets with chalks and today we made our astronaut.  We just need to make a rocket to complete the picture.  Come and have a look in our big room when it’s all done.

Today the children have made delicious moon rock cakes.  They weighed out the flour, sugar, butter and raisins and mixed them together with eggs and mixed spice before rolling them into moon rocks and sprinkling them with hundreds and thousands ‘space dust’.

The aliens have landed…..

Today the children have been busy making their own yellow, green, blue and red space helmets.  We noticed that when we put them on, everyone looked like they were a different colour and some of us thought we had aliens in our classroom!

This week the children have also been making their own ‘5 little men in a flying saucer’ so that they can sing the song and practice their counting.  We have talked about how even when an alien flies away, there is still 5 when we count them altogether.

We have also loved reading the story ‘On the Moon’ today and talking about all the things you find in space such as stars, planets, rockets, astronauts and aliens.  Next week we will make some of these and add them to a giant space picture in our big room. What will you help us to make?

Welcome back

Welcome back to all of our Nursery children.  We hope you all had a wonderful break.  It has been a very busy first week back and today we made 3 large pizzas together.  First we spread the tomato sauce onto the pizza base, then we cut up different vegetables and added them on top before finally sprinkling some cheese on.  On one pizza we also added some ham. We hope you all enjoyed your delicious pizzas!  Here are the pictures of us making them.
