Primary 6 Solar System

Primary 6 have loved learning about the Solar System this term.  We have researched the planets that make up our Solar System and after finding out many are named after Roman Gods we had the chance to share our findings in the form of a presentation to the Primary 4 class who have been learning about the Romans.  We learned a Mnemonic to help us remember the planets in the correct order and had fun making up ones of our own.  One of our favourites is My Very Excited Mother Just Served Us Nachos which reminds us the planets are Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.   After researching the planets we made papier-mâché models of the planets to show their size and distance from the Sun.
