Jamie JohnsonHost: Jamie (BSc (Hons), MSc, PGCE) is a Science teacher who is passionate about breaking down complex topics into digestible bites for students.

When we look up at night, we see points of light in the night sky. We know there are planets, moons and stars in space, but we also know lots about their arrangement and the structure of planetary systems like our solar system. 

In this class, students will address how key ideas were developed on our way to understanding our solar system and the composition of it. Students will also consider how the factors which lead to different seasons on Earth. 

This is a great class to answer some of the big questions about the Earth! It provides excellent revision of the subject for students who have already studied the topic but also is an excellent class for students wanting to get ahead or with a real interest in Earth and Space!
