Model of our Solar System

Monday 30 January 2023

In a recent Science lesson, we learnt about the different planets in our Solar System.

We learnt about the heliocentric model of the Solar System by which all the plants revolve around the Sun that is in the centre.

We learnt that different planets are different distances away from the Sun.

In order for us to fully grasp this concept, we scaled down the actual distances between the planets and represented their relative distances in the playground!

We found out that Mercury is the nearest planet to the Sun and Neptune is the furthest away!

Help at home by seeing if your child can remember the order of the planets from the Sun. We made a mnemonic in class to help us!
