We had fun on the playground pretending to be parts of the Solar System.

We had several children pretending to be the sun and a few children playing the Earth orbiting the sun over a year – we got a bit dizzy at this point because the small group were also spinning around (on the Earth’s axis) pretending to be the 24 hours it takes to do so!

We also had someone pretending to be the moon orbiting the Earth over 28 days. This job was quite hard as they had to side step round the Earth as it was travelling – we didn’t try to do this 28 times round the Sun as it would have been too difficult!

Elijah's Solar System

Elijah did a good job recording what we found out.
