Nn – Night

Our concert was a HUGE success! And we are so unbelievably proud of our Busy Bugs! Thank you for coming out to support us! 

Twinkle-twinkle little star, how I wonder what you are… This was one of many space themed songs that were sung this week and boy did we have fun singing them!  

Our Busy Bugs absolutely loved learning about space and all of the aspects involved. We spoke about the planets, meteors, stars, the milky way, astronauts and rockets. We watched lots of videos teaching us about all of these things and looked at loads of awesome pictures taken by satellites. We learned that we live on planet Earth, and this is the only planet that is known to have enough surface water to be inhabited by humans. We learned that Saturn has a giant ring of floating ice and rock chunks and that Jupiter is the biggest planet in our solar system.  

We spoke about astronauts and their space gear. They have to wear special suits and helmets while up in space because humans cannot breathe that far up. We spoke about gravity and how it makes objects, including people, float. We also spoke about the special food that astronauts have to eat. 

For art this week, we the most beautiful pieces, but we loved them so much, we have decided to keep the for art expo! 

Our other piece of art is absolutely stunning! We used white paint flecked with a toothbrush onto black paper to make a starry background, and watered down black paint in a spray bottle to make moons. We used our fine motor skills to stick star stickers onto our paper and use glue and glitter to turn one of our stars into a shooting star. 

We hope that all of our Bugs feel better soon, that you all have a lovely weekend and we will see you next week for another exciting theme!
