Our first week of a new term, and in the Monday club we are doing the topic ‘Stars, space and supernovas’…..
We started off easy. I knew two off these boys had had their first day back at school, and getting back in to the rhythm of early mornings, would mean they would be tired – and so, after an introduction of the topic, they were given their first ‘mission’….
..and by following a list of instructions, and a list of ingredients, they had to make their own ‘moon rocks’ (or meteors..)….
After an introduction to the topic, I wanted to start off with some games, to welcome the new children, and so we started with using the ‘air’ in our lungs by sucking up marshmallows and transferring them to our plates….
We then played a game where the children had to make a maze from bricks, and then take turns blowing ‘air’ from their lungs, to make a ping-pong ball travel through the maze – and time how long it takes….
