After watching the videos on the Wider Curriculum page, encourage your child to write about the facts they have learnt about space. Talk to your child about the meaning of the word ‘fact’. Using their knowledge of phonics, punctuation and tricky words, encourage your child to write three facts they have learnt about space.

 

Challenge: Write a sentence about your favourite planet in the solar system. Why is it your favourite planet?

Any other interesting features or information?

Using the template below, either cut out the words and stick them in the correct place or write the words to label the different parts of the rocket.

 

Challenge: When Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the moon in 1969, over 50 years ago, they travelled in a spaceflight rocket called Apollo 11. Can you think of an interesting name for the rocket you have just labelled or for the rocket you made last week?

As the children from reception were originally meant to be returning to school from this week, part of settling them back into their new routine would have meant talking to them about the importance of hygiene. Please share this social story with your child so that they are aware of some of the changes that will be put in place when they eventually return to school. We have also attached a poster showing the sequence of how to wash your hands thoroughly.
