Primary 5 pupils finished their Science topic on the Solar System by making scale models of the planets. Children worked together to decorate the planets in the correct colours before arranging them in the correct order.
They also researched individual planets and created a factsheet about each one. The planets and factsheets are now on display in the Science block. We didn’t create a model of the Sun as on this scale it would be bigger than the whole science room! Instead, pupils stood outside in a circle marking the size of the Sun compared to the planets.
