7E Science: Night and day

This half of the term we will be exploring space. Today we looked at how night and days occurs.

We inflated a balloon and stuck a cut out image of Australia on it, we used a globe to make sure we put it in the right place!

We then used string to carefully hang the balloon, which acted as Earth, from the ceiling.

We used a torch to act as the sun and rotated the ‘Earth’ so the sun would show midnight, midday, sunset and sunrise in Australia.

Next lesson we are going to look at phases of the moon.
