Learning about the solar system with...toilet roll!

Today class 5 began learning about their new topic - the extreme environment of space. We learned what the sun and the solar system are and how all the planets and other objects in the solar system orbit the sun because of its immense gravitational force. Class 5 were then set a team challenge which would involve the skils of collaboration, communication, calculation, planning and perseverance. They had to make a model representing the distance of each of the planets from the sun with TOILET ROLL!!! They did really well. Great team work class 5! Here are some photos.
