Newton Farm Primary School and Nursery Class

Room 9 Science Activity


Last week was Science week in school, so we got to do lots of activities throughout the week. Our favourite activity was when the STEM ambassadors from P7 came to help us learn about the moon.

We found out that the moon orbits the Earth and this creates different moon phases. There are 8 phases of the moon.  The first phase is a new moon, then the waxing crescent, first quarter, waxing gibbous, a full moon, waning gibbous, third quarter and then the waning crescent. Once all the phases have been completed, we then start the cycle all over again.

To help us remember the moon phases, the STEM ambassadors got us to make a craft plate showing all the different phases. Here are some of our pictures.


Isla really enjoyed the activity because she loves Science. She brings in her favourite Science book every day and we learn a new fact almost every day.
