Phases of the moon…

Yesterday, in year 5, we learnt about the 8 phases of the moon. We became familiar with the correct terminology such as ‘lunar calendar’ and were able to label the phases.

We were introduced to a ‘Phases of the Moon’ rap, which helped us during this lesson as it had some very catchy lyrics.

We also went outside to try and spot the moon, though we couldn’t actually see it, we learnt that our moon is currently in the ‘waxing gibbous’ phase.

Finally to demonstrate our understanding we used Jaffa Cakes to create some of the phases.
