Celebrating World Space Week at Highbury Lodge Day Nursery

Children from Highbury Lodge Day Nursery in Hitchin were delighted to take part in an ‘out of this world’ series of celebrations as part of ‘World Space Week’ festivities.

At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Highbury Road, talented parents showcased their creativity by making costumes for excited pre-schoolers, from astronauts with jet packs to planets and stars, before children enjoyed a series of themed activities, including making moon cakes and exploring the solar system.

Highbury Lodge Day Nursery Team Leader, Lynsey Biddle explained;

“We had a brilliant time immersing ourselves in World Space Week and particularly enjoyed a make-believe adventure in the garden, imitating the way astronauts move in zero gravity and using our imaginations to avoid the craters. Not only did we have fun, but this provided a great opportunity to build upon our scientific knowledge.”

World Space Week runs from 4th – 10th October 2021.
