Reception Woodpeckers Travel to Space

Reception Woodpeckers have been busy learning about space travel! They have been exploring their new ‘space station’ role play area by star gazing and flying to the moon. The children had an important job to do after receiving a letter from the character Bob in ‘The Man on the Moon’ story. They had to design a rocket to help Bob get to the moon.

The children independently selected the paints and brushes they needed and added collage materials to their paintings. The space vehicles have made an excellent classroom display!

Finally, the children had a go at making their own ‘moon sand’ by mixing flour and baby oil, the children said it felt smooth and smelt nice.
