Year 5 have been learning about the Sun, Earth and Moon during their science unit on Space. We learned that all three are spheres and discussed the evidence that led people to realise that the Earth was round, not flat. We then created scaled drawings to show the relative sizes of all three bodies and realised that the Sun was MUCH larger than the Earth and Moon! We also practiced our maths measuring skills while we were doing this, as we had to measure in both cm and mm.
