Kingfishers have investigated lots of different aspects of our Solar System since the beginning of term including the size of the planets relative to our Sun and how they orbit. Children had the chance to draw out their own orbital paths and experience movement as the Sun, Earth and moon thinking about how the different bodies rotate on their axes. We asked how we know the Earth is spherical (thinking about Aristotle's proposal) and why this is. Lots more exciting investigations to follow.
