Lunar Rovers!

As part of our Stargazers topic, for Design and Technology we have been designing, making and evaluation a lunar rover, which would be sent to the moon to explore this relatively unknown place. We have had some fantastic designs!

Toilet roll Solar System!

This afternoon we replicated the distance between the planets in the solar system using sheets of toilet paper to measure the relative distances between planets.  Although the toilet paper broke, we could still see the difference in the distance between planets.

We are trying to remember the names of the planets one way is to use mnemonics:

Poplar space pictures

 

This afternoon in Poplar, we practised various painting techniques to try to create a space picture.  In a couple of weeks we will use these techniques when creating more space pictures on a more exciting background.
