FORM 5 SCALING OUR SOLAR SYSTEM

Form 5 Science 8th March

In Science today, Form 5 gained an appreciation of the scale of our solar system.

 

Pupils created models  of the sun, earth and moon which were scaled to size and then they marked out in the school grounds how far away they would be relative to each other.  The children based the models on the moon being 5mm and were amazed by how large the sun was by comparison and the distance between the earth and the sun was 215m which the children paced out.   This has captured the interest and imaginations for Form 5 who are really enjoying their Solar topic.
