Exploring the solar system!

To kick start Year 5’s Science topic this term on the ‘Earth, Sun and Moon’, the children went on a visit to We the Curious and the 3D Planetarium in Bristol.

In the morning, the children had the opportunity to take part in a workshop on the planets of our solar system. The children learnt about the size and distance of the moon from the Earth, the order of the planets and the different phases of the moon.

Then the children had the opportunity to explore the museum, before going to the 3D planetarium, where there was so much for the children to engage with and find out even more about our solar system.

It was a great day out and we are confident that the visit will have sparked the children’s imagination as they embark on their latest science topic!
