Year 5 - Solar System

Year 5 pupils have been investigating the solar system this week.

The excellent experimenters took to the school field, with groups representing the Sun and the eight planets – Pluto no longer counts.


To demonstrate the relative distances of the planets from the Sun and in relation to each other, children spread themselves around the field, with Mercury just a single step from the Sun and Neptune a distant 76 steps away.
