P5/6 have started learning about our Solar System. We used fruit to create a scale model to help us understand the relative size s of the planets: Mercury=peppercorn, Venus=cherry tomato, Earth=cherry tomato, Mars=blueberry, Jupiter=Water melon, Saturn=grapefruit, Uranus=apple, Neptune=lime. Can your child tell you when Pluto was delisted as a planet? What is it now called? I wonder if you can work out what the title of this post is all about?! We had great fun learning today and finished off with some great solar system songs.
