To begin, we created a planet factfile about a planet of our choice using any medium we wanted.

We then made some mnemonics to help us remember the order of the planets.

After that, we went out onto the playground and imagined we were the planets.  We practised ordbiting the sun and making sure we were moving at the correct speed.

After that, we looked at day and night and how it occurs.  We go at to make some model planets out of plasticine.  We then practised how to exaplain day Andy night by using our models.
