Y5 Look at the stars...
Please enter an introduction for your blog post here.
Year 5 used the 'Sky Map' app (which is free if you want to try it at home...) to look at all the different constellations in the sky.
We discussed how they are largely named after mythical characters, or things that they look like. We focussed on Orion, since that is so easily recognisable, and learned that he was a giant hunter from Greek mythology.
After a bit of discussion, the children then used the app to pick and make their own constellations using spaghetti and marshmallows! We had great fun eating/clearing up some of the mess afterwards!
