Postcard from a JunkyardSupported by the Ernest Cook Trust
Puts colour in your eyes
Comes out twinkling in the cold sky at night
Colours like up the whole sky
A wiggly line with essence of glow
Dazzling snakes flying in the air
Has a variety of rainbow colours
Comes and goes
Job is to make sure people go to sleep on time
If it wasn’t there you’d be very grumpy
You look up to the sky, you’d be looking at it
Looks down and sees if we are naughty
Turns dark and then turns brighter
The only planet with life
Covered with water
Smiles at the moon
Green and blue Oreo
With us forever
Near the moon
Heat could fry you like a sausage
Supper with one ‘P’
Silently imploding then suddenly explodes
Send multi-coloured death rays in to space
A blinding flash like a bomb exploding in space
Looks down at the earth when the sky is black
Bounces light off the sun
Brings with it darkness
Small and white in space
Loves to run around the earth
Is the size of a dwarf planet
When it is in the air it goes through the wind like a shooting star
Takes people off the earth
Kind of a boys thing, not a girls
Shoots through the air like an aeroplane
As big as a giant
Rely on space rockets
Has a big white suit
Trained in the USA
Goes to all different planets
Explores and discovers
Bounces and boings in space.
Badger Class have had an exceedingly busy morning. This term their class topic is space, so we arrived this morning, with our junkyard bins at the ready to turn their classroom in to a colourful spacescape. I’ll now share with you just a few of the creations made today.
This is a cheeky alien, which I have been informed is from Planet HB 731835471, where the surface is lave, the core is diamond and it rains glass sideways. Phewf, not sure I want to visit that planet!
Moving on, I’d like to introduce you to our astronaut. This astronaut is from planet earth and their biggest mission ever was to go to Mercury.
This is the space helmet, complete with squirt gun attached as a defence device, it has an extendable antennae and bubble wrap on the top to make it look extra spacey.
This clever creation is the Aurora Borealis, which are also known as the northern lights. It was made to be a sun catcher, and comes complete with strings so it can be hung up at a window. Would you believe me if I told you it was made out of a bin liner?
And to conclude, I’ll share this shooting star with you, the group that made this worked extra hard to create two of these in the making time.
They’re now about to embark on a poetry workshop led by Paul to create some group poems based on their space creations.
Burning buildings with fire
Hot flames in his belly.
Tail as spikey as icicles
As dangearous as a lion
Very very long and thin.
Shoot at invaders
sharp as a nif
