The Solar System (1) 🌞

For this week, our children were on a little exploration to the outer space. Learning about the vastness of space and our solar system has enable them to gain greater appreciation of the Earth that we are living in. The little ones were awed and amazed by the colours and sizes of different planets around our Earth. Our children have also gained a better understanding that the sun is a star as well, along with other planets, comets, moons, asteroids and various matters.  In addition, they have learnt that our Solar System is located in the Milky Way Galaxy too.

Let us take a closer look at what they have been up to for this week.

Our younger children were learning about the rotation and revolution of moon, Earth and the Sun. To visualize what they have learnt, the toddlers work together to create a 3D representation of the concept.

Our children have also created many different models of  the Solar System. Based on their learning and discussion in class, they used various materials and colours to create our 8 planets in the Solar System.

The older children were engaged with painting of “The Starry Night”. They have always been very fascinated by the night sky, especially with the millions of stars.
