The Planets!

This afternoon year 5 were looking at the distances of planets from the sun. We started out by ordering ourselves as planets and how far apart we thought we should be. We then moved to the field and found out the relative distances. Who knew Neptune was 4.95 billion kilometres away from the sun?!
