RT have been learning so many space facts I am struggling to find new things to teach them! They are like super absorbent sponges at the moment! We have learned all about gravity and similarities and differences between the planets. We learned that the first living things to go into space were fruit flies (1947), then monkeys (1949), then a dog (1957) shortly followed by Yuri Gargarin (1961) and Valentina Kershkova in (1963). We made the planets in our solar system using paper mache techniques and painted them all the right colours. Have a look at some of our fantastic home learning too! Uzodinma said today…”Why is Earth called the Goldilocks planet? ” To which I responded that I didn’t know he then explained: “Because it is not too hot or too cold but just right!”
Who can remember which is the smallest planet in our Solar System? Which planet has a ring made of ice and dust? Why can’t we live on other planets?
