Kirkhill Primary School

Watch out NASA here we come!

Part of your homework this week is to look at the pictures below and see if you can figure out what’s going on in each one… are YOU an amazing astronomer? What are those bumps and holes on the moon called and how do you think they got there? What’s going on in the picture with the black circle? Why does the sun look so small when we know it’s HUGE? Who’s that man in the space suit and what’s he up to? I can’t wait to hear all your ideas!

    1. The circle is an eclipse, the moon is in front of the sun
    2. The sun looks so small because it is so far away…and do you know what…the sun doesn’t move, the moon goes round the earth when it’s going round the sun.
    3 That man is an astronaut, he was the first man on the moon and he’s putting up a flag.
    4. The holes in the moon are called craters

    Neil Armstrong was the first man on the moon.
    An eclipse happens when the sun is behind the moon.
    Craters are made when asteroids hit the moon .
    The sun looks small because it is so far away. Stars are even further.

    The bumps on the moon are kraitors. A black hole. The sun looks small because it’s so far away and that’s a spaceman explorer on the moon!

    Carlin thinks the following :
    The sun made the holes on the moon.
    It is a space man planting a flag on the moon.
    The sun is so so far away.
    The moon is blocking the sun.

    Jack said its a spaceman on the moon. He thinks it is clouds and the sun covering the moon. And he doesn’t know what the holes on the moon are but says they have been there for hundreds of years before any of us were born

    Robbie thinks the first picture is a man called Christopher on the Moon. He is a spaceman. The holes on the moon are different types of rock called craters. The moon is covering the sun it’s called an eclipe (eclipse) The moon looks so small because it’s far away from us.

    The moon is moving front of the sun, and the circle is an eclipse. The man is the first man on the moon, and Tom wasn’t sure what the holes were called but recognised craters when I said it.

    Finlay says
    1 – Crators – because meteors hit the moon. It is made from dust, metal and rock.
    2 – eclipse – its when the moon is in front of the sun
    3 – the sun looks so small because it is so far away.
    4 – Neil Armstrong is putting a flag on the moon. He is the first man on the moon and put a flag on it because its his Country. There has only been 12 people on the moon ever.

        Apparently daddy told Fin there has only ever been 12 men on the moon (thanks to Google). Also Buzz someone was second. But not Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story. This topic sparked some interest with the males in our house 🙂
