Y5 – Phases of the Moon

Why does the moon change shape? Is the moon a source of light? How long does it take the moon to orbit the earth?

In year 5 we have been answering these questions, a long with many others in our science topic this week. Why not ask your child some of the questions above to see what they’ve learned? We’re sure they can share their knowledge with you!

Here are some pictures of how we represented the different phases of the moon using Oreos!
