As part of our Space topic, P3/4 have been learning about the sun.
We now know it is a star! It is the only star in our Solar System. It gives three types of energy. Infrared energy gives us our heat, the visible light is the light we can see and ultraviolet light can burn our skin. We can protect ourselves by wearing sunscreen and hats.
We looked at tangles of energy causing explosions on the surface of the sun, called Solar Flares and explored what happened with the moon to cause a solar eclipse. To finish off, we experimented with chalk techniques to show a solar eclipse.
