In our Science topic we have been learning about the Earth, the sun and the moon. We started off learning about the planets that orbit the sun and made some pastel and brusho pictures of our planets in order. We also learnt about the orbits of the Earth and the moon out in the playground. It took us a while, but we found a sunny day to complete our shadow experiment. We made predictions throughout the day as to how the shadow would change and made conclusions once we had collected all of our data. We also looked at the different phases of the moon by drawing what we could see of a ball that was half white and half black (to represent the lit and dark sides of the moon). When we showed them in our circle we could link them to the 8 phases of the moon.
