Reception & KS1 explored the awe and wonder of the sky. After a story-telling introduction to the earth, moon, sun and stars pupils found out why the sun moves across the sky, looked for different phases of the moon and had a go at spotting Orion in the stars.
Key Stage 2 pupils explored our planet, moon, sun and solar system; how they move and what we see in the sky. Pupils learned about the stars through the gods and heroes, myths and legends of Ancient Greece.
