Today for the school science day, Nursery were looking at rockets and space. This is because today is the anniversary of Apollo 11 launch and moon landing. The children watched a video of the launch from 1969, and watched the astronauts walk on the moon. They found it very funny that the astronauts were bouncing on the moon! The children then made astronaut helmet masks so they could breathe in space and built their very own rocket! At snack time the children had a special treat of a star biscuit!
The children’s favourite activity was making our very own ‘blast off’ using mints and Diet Coke. The children had to count down ready for the blast!
The children had a fabulous day and I think we have a few budding astronauts for the future!
