Astronaut Training Day
To prepare us for our exciting space topic, we’ve put ourselves in an astronaut shoes and had a fantastic time completing astronaut training. While working on our teamwork, leadership and communication skills in groups, we completed a range of different activities.
First stop Torrisholme, next stop NASA! 👩🏾🚀
The Sun, Earth and Moon
We have been learning about the relative size and shape of the Sun, Earth and Moon.
Did you know in comparison, if the Moon was the size of a peppercorn, the Earth would be the size of the pea and the Sun would be the size of a beach ball.
We had fun predicting the relative sizes between them, then found out if the three were shrunk down the distance between them would be Moon to Earth - 25cm and Earth to Sun a huge 93m!
