The children thoroughly enjoyed the introduction to their new topic for this half term,  ‘Stargazers.’ They took expeditions through the solar system and across our night sky, and created digital planet fact files to showcase their learning. The children created their own mnemonics to remember the order of the planets and learnt about the size and scales of planets. 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 learnt all about the layers of the sun. Finally, they learnt about day and night, and they used Google Earth to plot where their families are from, adding in details of the different time zones.
