Children will begin recognising key story words such as ROCKET, BEAR, MOON. They will learn about what happened to baby bear when he went up the chimney. 


This term we will be exploring SPACE as our theme. We will be reading Whatever Next by Jill Murphy, a story of a bear who travels to the moon. He builds a rocket and has a wonderful adventure in space.




1. How will you travel to the moon? 

 Make a rocket to travel into space on your adventure... use whatever you can: blocks, boxes and even tins with food! Have fun stacking them and balancing your rocket. Can you count back for take off? 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 BLAST OFF!!! 


2. Where are you bear?

 Use the flashcards/power point below to practice positional words. We have been working on these words last term so you should be able to place a teddy correctly, following a word clue. All you need is a soft toy, a box and some basic furniture. Have fun! 


3. Shall we have a picnic on the moon?

 Take a blanket and set up a pretend picnic. Use some props from your kitchen- count how many plates and cups will you need for you and your family. 

 If you can, why not bake some delicious star-shaped biscuits? Here is a recipe... 


4. Can you sing a space song?

 "Zoom, zoom, zoom, we're going to the moon. 

  Zoom, zoom, zoom, we'll be there very soon.

  Five, four, three, two, one.... BLAST-OFF!
