Solar System Puzzle

Today Mrs McNair gave us a 60 piece jigsaw puzzle. It was a picture of our solar system and it had interesting facts about our planets.
We were the first class to get to use the puzzle. We really enjoyed it!
Thanks Mrs McNair

Solar System Display

Here's a wee snapshot of some of the fantastic art Room 8 have been doing for our Solar System topic study. Today we have made up our own "did you know..." facts. We're learning so much and having a great time too!

Star Dome

Today we went into the Star Lab with Room 9. What an amazing experience this was. We not only learnt about the stars in our night sky but also interesting facts about the planets, meteorites and comets. We had a burning question!!! Is Pluto a planet? Has it been reclassified again? No! It's not a planet. It is not the 9th planet in our solar system. Pluto is part of an asteroid belt and is a dwarf planet, a little bit bigger than the Earths moon.

Welcome Back!!!

Hi everyone! Welcome back to term three!
This is normally our coldest and wettest, but hardest working term of the year!

We have kicked off term three with a small reminder about how to behave appropriately in class and at school. We created this awesome display on our board at the front of the classroom where we can be reminded daily!

We're kicking off the term with a study about "Our Solar System". The children are already excited and I've heard many discussions about what stars are and why Pluto is no longer a planet.
