Please remember the age of the children in my class ( 7/8) They say things which from an older child would be regarded as cheek, however from them, its genuine.
I had to introduce the children to a globe of the earth today. Many are unlikely to have known that the Earth is spherical so I decided to go at it through a picture in a 'big book' they are fond of. I opened the "Really Big Book of the Universe" and showed them a picture of our solar system. I pointed to the blue planet and said,
" This is Earth, this is where we live"
Ky immediately pointed to Jupiter and said,
"and this is where the aliens live".
