Welcome back after our unexpected closure last week.
Although we only had two days of school, we managed to finish our discussion on air transportation. We focused on rockets, spaceships and astronauts and talked about traveling out to space. Some of us knew the word rocket, but were unfamiliar with the words spaceship and space shuttle. We pretended to get on a rocket and went to the moon! In the art centre, we made a rocket from tissue rolls and practiced cutting along the lines to make the fire for our rocket.
On Tuesday we had a special guest come to visit us. Smile’s father, who is a pilot, came to our classroom and talked to us about flying an airplane. We were so excited to see the big airplane that he had brought to our classroom. We learned about the different parts of a plane. He even let us all have a turn to try on his pilot hat. We then watched a short clip about flying an airplane. Thank you very much to Sky’s father and mother for sharing this wonderful experience with all of us.
This week we will start our discussion on water transportation. We will start by talking about water transportation without engines. At home while your children are taking a bath, you can also talk to them about sinking and floating which will also be part of our discussion these next couple of weeks.
