This week we have learnt about our galaxy, the Milky Way and the Solar system which our planet Earth is a part of.

In our lessons we talked about how the planets orbit the sun and the moons , orbit the planets. The children were very interested about the many different moons and wanted to continue their research regarding the topic as an extension. The children saw that the Earth is in the Goldilocks zone, not too not and not too cold.

We also did a role play and drama lesson, with the children enjoying their role as a different planet, the Sun and even an asteroid!
