I love #WordoftheWeek with The Reading Residence… because I love the personal  reflection involved with deciding which word sums up my week.  This week it’s ‘stargazing’.

Has anyone else been enjoying ‘Stargazing’ on CBeebies with their little ones?

We have!  It’s been fascinating learning about satellites, the moon, craters and why venus ‘glows’.

I was We were really excited to see the International Space Station featured.  We saw it with our own naked eyes over our house on Christmas Eve!  Truly incredible.

The presenters/writers on ‘Beebies’ (as we call it in our house!) did a great job breaking the information down into bitesize, easy to understand pieces.

It reminded me of when I was younger and my Dad sometimes watched ‘Newsround’ with John Craven with us – for the exact same reason – it was broken down into easy to understand bitesize pieces.

Thank you CBeebies for a great series…

  3. Ah, we miss CBeebies! Sounds like a great programme x #WotW

    • It’s an ‘odd’ feeling that some of the ‘Beebies’ programmes are too young for our little bear now. But lovely that she has the concentration to watch and then question everything…

  4. You said enough to make me want to watch it. Love being reminded that there is more to this place that Earth

  5. Oh are you super excited for cbeebies land too??? We are. I mean the kids are. I don’t really fancy Mr Bloom or anything. Not at all (I love him) WotW xxx
