The Earth, Sun and Moon within our Solar System
This Spring Term our Science Topic is Earth and Space and we began by brainstorming what we know and what we would like to find out the answer to. As a class, we have begun by examining the relationship between the Earth, Sun and Moon. The children have explained what causes day and night and why lunar and solar eclipses happen. We have created scale models of the planets and then measured out the distances between them to scale out in the school grounds.
