Learning about the Solar System

Just a few more things we have been interested in…..

The solar system has been the focus of lots of children’s play. We shared and created a display based on the story ‘Aliens Love Underpants’. We also carried out lots of activities based on ‘Commotion in the Ocean’ as we explored the sea animals with lots of messy and sensory play.

We have been mini scientists exploring how materials and ingredients can change as they turn from a liquid to solid and melt again commenting on what we have observed using lots of descriptive language. We are now experts on mixing colours and can predict what will happen when mixing red, yellow, blue, white and black using lighter and darker shades too.
