Where we are in place and time

Grade Two are now inquiring into the views people have held throughout history on the Earth Moon and Sun.

Our central idea is, “Over time people’s curiosity has led them to think beyond planet Earth”

During this unit we will be asking the children the think about
The relationship between the Sun, Moon and Earth
Why did ancient cultures feel the need to make up stories about the planets?
How do we know what we know now?

This is a unit in which the children usually ask a lot of questions. If your child has any resources at home, such as books, especially if they are in your child’s first language please encourage your child to read them and bring them into school.

At some point after the Easter Break, we will email you about a ‘Star Gazing Evening’, when you and your child we be able to come to school in the evening and view the stars and the moon, through very powerful telescopes.
