Planets

Science fiction can be really annoying when  it gets the  science facts wrong.  The size of stars and planets and the distances between them are huge. Playground    planets uses a variety of scales to explain relative sizes and distances in the solar system and our galaxy. Children recreate moon craters just like the real thing. And how does gravity work? We model the solar system in several ways to explain why Mercury is  such a quick mover and why we don't crash into the sun!

This more than   covers NC requirements for KS2 science including day and night and the seasons. And it’s fun!
