Twinkle, twinkle, little star. Why are there stars in the sky at night? Does everyone go to bed at the same time? It’s time to find out more about night time. This half term, we’ll be entering the celestial world of a mobile planetarium. We’ll listen carefully to a presentation about the patterns of the stars, and ask an expert questions about the universe. Snuggling up with comfy cushions and blankets, we’ll listen to bedtime stories and nursery rhymes. Zzz... Wide awake once more, we’ll learn about people and services that work at night, the Hubble Telescope and nocturnal animals. We’ll also find out more about how good bedtime routines can have a positive impact on our health, and take part in a series of bedtime challenges. Ready, steady, brush your teeth! In our mathematics lessons, we’ll play with the shape and size of star patterns, and create moons of different sizes out of sparkly play dough. Getting creative, we’ll make constellations out of battery-operated tea lights, and star mobiles out of silver sequins and glittery pompoms. At the end of the project, we’ll share and reflect on what we have learnt, and we’ll use our knowledge and creativity to write a bedtime story to take home to read. We’ll also hold a lullaby sing-along for new babies and their parents.
