S for Solar System

Every week we focus on a letter of the alphabet and children are asked to bring in items or picture beginning with that specific letter. Our main aim is to teach the phonetic sound of the letter to help children to learn to read. One of the children has a passion for space and decided to make a Solar System for the week when we focussed on ‘s’. She is able to name all the planets and can share an interesting fact about most of them. Her mum used dots to help her write Solar System, which is a good starting block for learning to write. What an amazing piece of work for a relatively simple subject.
