The sun, moon and earth

Ashmansworthy class has learnt about the orbits of the Earth and moon around the sun. We learnt that we get day and night because the earth rotates on its axis, and because it is tilted, we get seasons. It takes 365 1/4 days for the earth to orbit the sun. Every 4 years the four quarters make up the extra day in a leap year. The moon orbits the earth once every 28 days, and it looks different depending on how much of its face is reflecting the sun. The children used this information to produce information posters. They worked hard on the presentation of their posters and I think you’ll agree, they look very effective. Look out for them displayed around the school.
