This coming week we begin our new IEYC Unit called Blast Off! We are going to learn all about space! We begin with our Entry point on Wednesday, this will be a very exciting day where a space rocket will have landed in our playground!! We will discover an alien family have landed here and are looking for a home. Their rocket is broken and they need us to build them a cosy place to live in our classroom. We will then go and create a cosy den in our roleplay area. The children will practice making decisions and cooperating together as they use blankets and materials to build the home. We will use our reflection and enquiry skills to think about our own individual homes and what we need in them to feel cosy and happy. 
We will also look at the Big Picture of the Blast off unit and learn what exciting learning we have coming up! The children will have to opportunity to capture their curiosity and share their own interests and ideas for the Space unit. We will reflect on what we already know about space and decide what we would like to explore further.

Here is a space video you can watch at home to take part in your own space enquiry, try to chat more at home to get our ideas and excitement flowing about space!
