Whatever Next!

Our topic this half term is space. Last week we focused on the story Whatever Next! The children have been reading the story and learning to retell the story for themselves with actions to help them remember it. The children have been acting out the story in our provision area under the twinkling stars (above this area is a huge black sheet and lots of twinkling fairy lights to help children imagine being in space). The children have really enjoyed sitting inside the rocket and blasting off in to space. They have been using the props to act out taking off and having a picnic on the moon. The children have written postcards home from space in this area and have also been writing parts of the story here. We have been learning to practice counting backwards from 20 and the children like to make a rocket countdown in here by rearranging the numbered rockets.

Next week we are looking at the story Aliens love underpants
