This was not a fluke, I had to planet

Since returning from Easter holidays, we have been learning about Earth and Space. 

We started by finding out lots of facts about all the planets in our solar system. We then made our own scaled model of the solar system in the playground, using fruit and toilet paper. Each table created their own Orrery! Some of the children even made it so that their Orerry displayed the planets in the same location that they were on the day we made them! How cool!
This week we tried to investigate shadows, however it's been extremely cloudy, so it has been a bit of a struggle completing investigations. The children took their sundials home on Friday though, so they are going to try and tell the time using them over the weekend. 

Have a lovely bank holiday!
