*Twinkle Twinkle Little Star…*

Last week we were looking at stars.

Up on the sledging hill, in the local park, late in the afternoon when the sun had just gone down, we saw our first star.

It was the North Star, the Polaris.

“Make a wish!” I shouted to the kids.

Alfie wished for “all the skateboards in the world” – he hasn’t yet got the concept of ‘wish and don’t tell’!

Then we saw a second star, and a third.

So we’ve been looking at stars.

Reading books about stars….

This one…

And this one…

Learning about stars from the internet.

Doing simple star experiments….

Like this one…

And this one...

We’ve been looking up in to the sky, and trying to find red stars, blue stars and yellow stars.

Discovering stars in the kitchen….

Like these cheese stars…

And these shining star biscuits…

Arty stars…

Like these printed stars…

And these lovely collage stars…

And we can’t go without drawing stars….

This week we’re going to go on another evening star walk.

We’ve already started using this iPad app to look at the stars above,

and this fantastic kindle book to discover the stories behind the constellations.

This week – constellation week!

🙂
