5F – Science

In Science, we have been looking at the different theories around a geocentric vs a heliocentric system.

In the past, scientists thought that the planets orbited around the Earth (geocentric). We now know that the planets orbit around the Sun because it has a greater gravitational pull – because it is huge!

Today, we made models of our Solar System. We chose which fruit would represent which spherical body according to the size. We then put them in the correct order from the sun. Finally, we drew lines to represent the orbit of the planets around the sun.

We then wrote explanations to go alongside the models:
