Den Building

This week in Forest School we were given all of the equipment we might need to make a den. It was a team effort and we tried to make a den that all of us could sit in. It was very windy and the tarpaulin kept blowing away from us. In the end we made a den and Tylin suggested that we have a sleepover in it! Maybe we should have a campfire and hot chocolate and marshmallows! 


This week we have been learning lots of numbers related to the sun. Here are the numbers: 93,000,000, 864,000, 109, 365, 28, 24 (1) Do you know what these numbers mean?

Did you know that the sun is 93,000,000 miles away.  

 The sun's diameter is 864,000 miles across.

The diameter of the sun is 109 times bigger than the diameter of the earth.

It takes 365 days for the earth to go around the sun.

It takes 28 days for the moon to go around the earth.

It takes 24 hours (1 day) for the earth to spin on its axis. 

That's it. The Sun in numbers. 

Have a look at our models of the Sun, Earth and Moon. We made them to help us understand that the Earth goes around the sun and the Moon goes around the Earth. They were a bit tricky to make.
