Let’s make alien space ships
Begin to think about what an alien space ship would look like, what shape would it be? What colour? Would it have doors, flashing lights, a window?
On paper design the shape of their ships first, thinking about what they have available to them, do they want a door which can come down to let the aliens out, do they want a light on it etc.
Labels could be added to their designs to share details and they may want to make a list of items they will need to go and find to be able to make it e.g. a carboard box, a toilet roll tube, tin foil,
Send us a photograph we would love to see your spaceships.
Collect some leaves, stones or sticks together to make an alien spaceship landing pod.
