St Dominic Catholic Primary

If we live by truth and in love, we shall grow in Christ

Blast Off!

We have started a new DIMENSIONS theme – Blast Off!   The children have been excited to learn about Our Solar System. Our book focus this week  – ‘Meet the Planets’ by Carly Hunt - is a rhyming picture book which took the children on a space adventure to meet all the planets of the solar system, from shimmering Saturn to Mighty Mars! We enjoyed so many different Space related activities - the children made spaceships and rockets, have used water colour paints to create pictures of different planets, watched videos of space rocket launchers and experienced a Planetarium where they took a look at planet Earth, the Sun and the Moon.  It was wonderful to discover how the Sun creates the Aurora Borealis or Northern lights. They are also learning songs and rhymes  about ‘Space’.

Ask your child to tell you something they have learned about Space this week.
