During the month of January, Junior and Senior Infants learned all about Outer Space We spent four weeks learning lots of fascinating facts about Space. It was a very popular theme because it was so interesting and lots of fun!
Over the two weeks we learned all about the solar system, astronauts and the first moon landing. We learned all about the stars/constellations, the moon and the planets.
We discussed what it would be like to be an astronaut in space, watched lots of YouTube clips of the first moon landing. In our history lessons, we also learned all about the first man to walk on the moon, Neil Armstrong. We added our faces to astronauts and travelled to the moon in Drama lessons.
Aistear involved a junk art station where we made rockets, a playdough station, a construction station, where some children built Apollo 11 and Kennedy Space Station and a role play station where children became astronauts and headed to Outer Space.
At Music time we learned lots of lovely songs such as the very catchy Planet Song to help us remember facts about our planets. Have a look at our photos to see how much fun we had while learning throughout the month of January.
