Thought I’d better blog some of the Science I’m doing!
-first we identified what shape (ish) planets are, and what we think the planets are called
-some struggled that the sun is a star, due to size (proximity)
– we had a look at pictures of the planets (top trumps from TES) and discussed the temperatures, reminding that – means really cold
– talked about why planets closer to sun are hotter
-had a go at this game (originally on BBC website, now not)
-learnt the word ‘orbit’
By the end we could all name at least three planets, some could give the order and most agreed the sun was a star and knew the word ‘orbit’
