Curriculum Area




  • We will be exploring the story of the Moon Landing. Explore the moon landing through the song ‘zoom, zoom, zoom, we’re going to the moon’ song.


  • Explore heavy and light objects by making your own planets. You could:

        o Use fruit such as melons to explore heavy

        o Make papier mache planets to explore light

        o Make sensory space bottles (stars, glitter, water, food           colouring, shampoo etc) with different amounts inside. Some could be made light and some could be made heavy

  • Explore big and small through a range of sensory activities. You could:

       o Use different sized welly boots to make footprints in moon dust (cocoa powder or milk shake powder)

       o Make your own big and small planets. Similar to heavy and light, you could use different sized fruit (e.g. oranges, melons, kiwis etc). You could use big and small balloons.


  • For Science you could create a light box by placing fairy lights or a torch in a clear plastic box/tuppaware lined with black or dark paper. Place different coloured circular items on top to represent planets.
  • For D&T you could make your own rocket using a range of materials. You could use a cardboard box, shiny tin foil and plastic containers. Encourage pupils to handle and look at the differences in material, is it rough or smooth? Can you bend it? Etc
  • For History, revisit the zoom, zoom, zoom, we’re going to the moon rhyme and use props to re-enact the moon landing. Countdown together and launch the rocket into the air or throw it into a tray with moon dust in.
