So today we continued our space project by looking at mercury and making our own one to add to our universe.

In each one they are practising different painting technics as well as mixing colours we are trying to make the planets sizes in scale with one an other although the sun couldn’t be any bigger and stay together.


The children are finding out different information to add to the planet such as its distance from earth and the sun and we are having to make sure that the planets are big enough to add this information to them which is fun so we had to make mercury a bit bigger we are trying to make it so pluto only has to have its diameter on it as it will be very small lol.

The children had a couple of friends around today they sat and played on the PS3 on little big planet 2 as well as Disney Universe before getting back to school work and having some messy fun.
