    Celebrating space week in Infants – below are idea & topic I would complete with my class to celebrate space week.

    Literacy:Read books about space, such as “There’s No Place Like Space” by Tish Rabe or “Roaring Rockets” by Tony Mitton.
    Space Journals: Kids can draw and write (where possible) about what they would see and do if they went to space.

    Maths:Counting Stars: Use star stickers to practice counting and simple addition/subtraction.
    Shape Rockets: Create rockets using different shapes & tangrams

    P.E.Astronaut Training: Set up an obstacle course to simulate an astronaut training camp with activities like crawling through tunnels and jumping over “craters.”
    Space Walk: Go on a “space walk” kids need to move slowly as if they’re walking on the moon, while practising balance

    ART – Making rockets using junk art materials or paint and print a galaxy on black paper.

    Drama – Space Role-Play: Students can role-play as astronauts, mission control, or aliens.

    Music: Space Songs: “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” or “Zoom, Zoom, Zoom, We’re Going to the Moon.”
    Create Space Sounds: Use instruments to create sounds that represent rockets launching, stars twinkling etc

    Science: Rocket Launch Experiment: using the balloon with straw on a string method.
    Constellation Creations: Use black paper and white chalk or stickers to create constellations or use images and try recreate these on our school playground.
