Bluebirds were very interested in learning all about the moon today. They discovered it does not give out moon light but reflects sunlight. They acted out how the moon moves using equipment besides watching film animations. They realised that the moon is present all the time and does not “come out” at night. Mrs Parry and Ryan had both noticed the moon one morning last week, before school!
Charlie – I’ve learnt there are new names for different parts of the moon such as new moon, half moon and the dark/far side!
Ryan – The Moon orbits the Earth.
Havanah – Other planets have got different moons.
Paige – When there is less of the moon it is called waning.
Ibrahim – The Moon spins anti-clockwise.
Dewha – When there is more of the moon it’s called waxing.
