Year Five Astronomy

Year Five have just started learning about astronomy.  Next week, both classes are off to the Carter Observatory for a visit.
We have started our first sessions looking at the planets and trying to get some appreciation for how far away they are.  The boys have enjoyed looking at the distances between planets and writing their own mnemonics for learning the order of the planets.  We used our new Solar System Mapping tool and went outside to have a look at the order of the planets and the distances from the sun.
