A couple of weeks ago our class visited Pinegrove Kindergarten. We had so much fun playing on the pirate plank with the other children. Have a look at our previous post.

Edwards Solar System

Today Edward and his mum brought in a solar system to show us all. Edward has this solar system hanging up in his bedroom. It even has a remote control. So Edward can lie in bed and turn it on, which makes all the planets move continually around the sun.
Wow it was amazing and Ed was able to tell us so much about the planets.
Well done Ed, this was very cool, we were all very impressed.
Thanks also to Jane (Ed's mum) for holding the solar system up for so long!
