Rockets, Astronauts and Chinese New Year!

As part of our 'Becoming Scientists' theme we have been learning about space; learning how astronauts eat, drink and sleep in space. We made name rocket pictures, printed pictures of rockets using rectangles, triangles and our hand prints. The children also made collage astronauts by cutting out photographs of their faces, sticking them onto an astronaut and creating their spacesuits using silver and white pieces of paper. 

The children also enjoyed learning about Chinese New Year. They watched the Lion Dance and the Dragon Dance, learned that red is a lucky colour and that children receive money wallets to celebrate this festival. They also enjoyed sampling some prawn crackers!
