Indigo Class ~ Term 1
Welcome back to school.
This term's learning journey is:
Journey through space: the final frontier. Navigate beyond the sun; the magnificent, blazing star at the centre of our solar system.
Investigate the eight planets: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Take a look at the moon; a celestial body which orbits the Earth.
Exploring space is probably the greatest adventure that humankind has ever undertaken. Are we alone or are there other life forms out there?
Did you know?
- The Earth is not truly spherical: it bulges at the equator. Which means it looks fatter in the middle!
- The footprints and tyre tracks left by astronauts on the moon will remain there forever as there is no wind to blow them away!
- The planet Neptune is named after the Roman god of the sea.
- Venus is often referred to as Earth’s sister planet because of its similar size and mass.
