Y5 Earth and Space

Y5 have started their new Science topic. We have been learning about the planets in our solar system and how theories around the shape of the Earth and the way in which it orbits has changed over time. Excitingly, we also created our very own representation of our solar system using different sized balls and toilet roll! Each piece of toilet roll represented 16,000,000 km. To represent the distance for Neptune from the sun we had to count out 280 pieces and as you can see we ran out of space in the classroom.
