This week we continue learning Block 1; Friends from outer space. We will have a special focus on "Up above the world so high" which is all about the stars! We will be making our own stars, exploring real star constellations as well as learning about astronomers and the special equipment they use. We will make star gazing telescopes in class for our role play area. 
We will sing twinkle twinkle little star in class, one of our favourite nursery songs so we know it well. Perhaps at home you could sing this song together before bed, then look at the sky to see if any stars have appeared outside your window. 
Our Big Question this week is What Do Stars Look Like? By taking part in a star enquiry this week we will discover what stars really look like and that they are not like the star shapes we usually draw. This will open up several ore questions about what stars are made of and what they are doing in the sky!
