This week in science, Y5 children have been learning all about the Earth’s moon. Did you know, there are over 150 moons in the solar system? Did you know the Earth’s moon is the fifth largest? Did you know our moon was formed 4.3 billion years ago when another planet collided with the Earth? Nor me!
We went onto the yard to learn about what orbits what. We learned about phases of the moon using Oreo biscuits and by using special effects in the Activity Centre. We all produced some fascinating work in the Computing suite. Did you know the footprints made by the Apollo astronauts in the moon’s dusty surface in 1969 will be there for thousands of years to come. Nor me!
