Senior Infants have been learning all about Space over the last two weeks. We learned that a solar system is a group of planets and moons that all travel around a sun. The sun is the heart of our solar system, it is a yellow star, a hot ball of glowing gases. Its gravity holds the solar system together.

We learned the names of the eight planets and discussed why Pluto is no longer included. Have a listen to the song we used to learn the planets.

Ask your children what other facts they learned about the solar system!

Here’s a look at what we’ve been getting up to in Aistear!
