Discovering Together

Space gets fruity!

This week we have enjoyed many space stories, including Bringing down the moon, Look up!, This way to Outer Space and Man on the Moon to name but a few. This has led to some fantastic chats about space, astronauts and how they travel.

Showing the children a picture of some fruit rockets got the children very excited, so we decided to make our own.

We talked about fruits that we do and don't like and tried to explain why. Then we designed our own fruit rocket, and made a list of all the ingredients we would need, using all of our phonics knowledge to help us. We said the names of the fruits very slowly to hear the different sounds in the words and then wrote the sounds that we heard...



Then we were all set...

We had a go at reading our own list and looked at our designs to help us transform our 2D designs into 3D edible masterpieces...




Then finally, the best part... we got to eat it!
