Spanish Space Exploration

February 17, 2017

This term the Spanish group from Year 5 studied the planets and our Solar System. The students were so excited about the topic that in the last week of this term we decided to find out more about our Solar System. We discussed about the planets ‘names and their meaning. We also talked about the Greek and Roman gods and goddesses and their connection to the planets. The students drew to scale, that is, the relative sizes of one planet to another planet, and wrote the names of the planets and the governing god or goddesses. It was a really exciting lesson and the students seem to have had a lot of fun.
