This week we have been celebrating the global event of World Space Week. It's officially defined by the United Nations as "an international celebration of science and technology, and their contribution to the betterment of the human condition". So what better excuse to encourage our imagination and creativity than building our own space rockets and vehicles from junk modelling. After practising tearing the tape and working with our friends to help us attach the materials together, models were created, decorated and flown; and even landed on the moon. We were fortunate to be able to see the moon in the sky this week, prompting lots of conversations about day and night, light and dark and shapes. After enjoying some wonderful books about space, both fiction and non-fiction, we were inspired to put on our space helmets and fly to the moon. We practised floating in space, taking big steps on the moon and driving our moon buggies without crashing.
