Imagine you are going to take a journey into space: what will you need to take with you, what will you wear and what will you see? During this interactive storytelling activity, pupils will actively participate in imagining the journey of a lifetime. Blasting off from Earth, visiting the sun and moon before landing safely back at Dynamic Earth will help pupils develop an idea of the scale of the Universe and our position within it. They will get the opportunity to handle space food and real 4.5 billion year-old meteorites. Encouraging the use of noise and actions will help pupils engage with the topic and feel enthused about learning.
Space: I have experienced the wonder of looking at the vastness of the sky, and can recognise the sun, moon and stars and link them to daily patterns of life.
Listening and Talking - Enjoyment and choice: I enjoy exploring events and characters in stories and other texts, sharing my thoughts in different ways.
Tools for listening and Talking: As I listen and talk in different situations, I am learning to take turns and am developing my awareness of when to talk and when to listen.

When I engage with others, I know when and how to listen, when to talk, how much to say, when to ask questions and how to respond with respect.
Understanding, learning and evaluating: To help me understand stories and other texts, I ask questions and link what I am learning with what I already know.

I can show my understanding of what I listen to or watch by responding to and asking different kinds of questions.
