The Sun, The Earth And The Moon

Year 6 have been revisiting the relationship between the planets in Science, and to help them remember that the Moon goes around the Earth and the Earth goes around the Sun (and the associated timings!) they created some animations using 2Animate. We weren’t too bothered about scale but we wanted the motion of the bodies to be correct. This one, by Akif, does include a moment where the Moon bounces off the Sun (!), but is still our favourite due to the 50+ slides he used to create it, the detail he added and the fact that everything moves as it should. It also helps us explain why Friday’s solar eclipse is going to happen. Well done Akif!
