English Club : The Sun And The Earth

Yesterday we tackled the basics of the sun, and its relation to Earth. 

We talked about how it creates our night and day, and did the classic ‘torch and globe’ experiment…

 
And we talked about how the sun creates our seasons, and I challenged the kids to make a poster explaining this to a ‘young child’….

    

 …and we talked a little about our sun being a star, and the different stars in the sky, and how they have different colours because of their different temperatures – and we observed the flame of a candle to experience how the blue light is the hottest, etc. We will do more on stars next week.

I also bought them an english ‘milky way’ chocolate bar each – just for fun…šŸ˜‰
