Today we began our exploration of space. We shared our existing knowledge of space and came up with some lists of things we might find if we visited space. Some of us had some great ideas and were able to name some of the planets.
In maths we created rockets using 2D shapes. We talked about the shapes we had used, and then wrote the countdown from 20-0 to blast our rockets into space.
We also used the iPads to explore space and discover more of what we would see in space. We used this information to create our own space scenes. Our pictures were out of this world!
We began to read a story called The Sea of Tranquility. It is about a young boy who loves learning about space, but he is most fascinated by the moon and hopes to go there one day. We left the story with the little boy in bed dreaming. What do you think happens in the little boys dream! We will find out tomorrow!
