It was lovely to catch up and chat about the children tonight. How lucky the children are to have such supportive help from home – it does make my job so much easier – thank you.
The children will be creating a visual representation of the solar system on Friday. This needs to include the sun and the 8 major planets. The important aspect is to try to show relative size and distance from the sun.
I have encouraged the children to talk this through at home to try and get some ideas. It doesn’t need to be a Blue Peter special, made out of a milk carton and an egg box – I’m happy for 2D,digital or anything else they can think of. I’m hoping the parents I see tomorrow night will be ‘brimming’ with ideas – poor show from those I asked for inspirational thinking this evening!
