The year 2’s had a busy third term learning about space. We visited the Planetarium where we learnt about the planets in our solar system and star constellations. The children were also taught how to recognise a planet in the starry night sky.
Using the information from the outing and from work covered in class, the children designed their own planet projects. This included research of a factual planet and the creation of their own “Imaginary Planet”. The children made wonderful models of their imaginary planet, containing sweets, balloons and lots of paper mache!
