To help our understanding of the Solar System, we have started by staying relatively close to home. We have explored different scientists’ theories through history, and whether they were geocentric or heliocentric ideas.

Then, we have created Sun, Earth and Moon models to show how they move in relation to each other, but the most fun we have had so far was on Thursday when Mr C brought in lots of Jaffa Cakes! This helped us understand how the phases of the Moon are created, and help us remember each phases name. We also used a ping pong ball and light to see the phases change right before our eyes!
