Year 5 work with Technology Tom!

Tech Tom

Year 5 write:

Recently we made an orrery with Technology Tom – an orrery is a model of how the Solar System works. It was a fun activity. The orreries were made out of lots of different materials like little mini straws, lolly sticks, polystyrene balls, an electric wire, sticks, an elastic band, square prism, little yellow clips and a foam cube. We had to put all of the things together so that when you turned the Suns stick the Earth spins and the Moon orbits the Earth.

It was one of the best things Year 5 have ever made and we certainly enjoyed making it. Thank you Technology Tom!
