Year 5 are currently learning about ‘Earth and Space’ in Science. In yesterday’s lesson, the children started by recapping the order of the planets in the solar system. Then, in groups, they took on the role of one of the planets. They acted out how the planets move in the Heliocentric Model (with the sun at the centre and the planets orbiting around it). The children found out that in ancient times many people believed that the solar system was Geocentric. They believed that the Earth was the centre of the solar system and all the other planets and Sun orbited it.
