learning about Space

Our curiosity deepens as we drift into Space

Carrying on along our journey through space we are working on understanding our world beyond what we can see. Understanding of the world develops as children take notice of everything around them including places and all the things within their visible world such as natural environments, roads and traffic in the built locations, especially in Jakarta.

We have been extending this curiousity and understanding by wondering what happens and what it look like in places where we cannot see directly, such as Space. This awareness is extended by questioning and researching to find out about different elements of space through books and through the use of technology. In our international school, we have supported the children’s development of their crucial knowledge, skills and understanding that help them to make sense of the world. They have been offered opportunities to undertake practical experiments; and work with a range of materials to build and create their own solar systems. This channel of learning  through exploration and investigation focuses on learning about cause and effect and is developed through having conversations with adults and other children about the things that they discover and observe. They are able to develop their curiousity and observational skills through manipulating objects and describing the features of objects such as playing with red sand and talking about why, what and how life on Mars may exist. They have been investigating many 'what', 'where', 'how', humans live in space questions. They wondered if the astronauts had to go outside the space station if they needed to use the toilet? They are able to hold conversations which compare their known word to an unknown world, where they are looking at similarities, differences and changes. This topic has brought about a sense of place and the children have been asking relevant questions about their world such as, "what if we had no atmosphere, will an asteroid crash on earth? what could happen?”
