The children have thoroughly enjoyed the introduction to their new topic for this half term,  ‘Stargazers.’ They have taken expeditions through the solar system and across our night sky, and created digital planet fact files to showcase their learning. They created their own mnemonics to remember the order of the planets and learnt about the size and scales of planets by using fruit as representations. They participated in a range of art activities, such as making their own paper mache planets, using oil pastels to sketch the Northern Lights picture and creating shadow art. Additionally, the children have learnt all about the layers of the sun. Finally, they have learnt about day and night, and used Google Earth to plot where their families are from adding in details of the different time zones.
