Following on from planes last week, we spent this week having fun with rockets.


– painting a rocket and aluminium foil

– planet painting (rolling practice golf balls through paint)

– sorting words into two rockets (we used words that begin with ‘g’ and words that end with ‘g’ but this activity lends itself to so many possibilities. Inspired by this).

– straw rockets (instructions here.)


– drawing a rocket

– star threading

– sight words and making sentences with words on rockets

– rocket cake

– bubble wrap moon painting

– making and throwing a comet (adapted from here)
