YEAR 5 ASSEMBLY

Sun Blast [Lyrics]

CHORUS
It’s a system that turns round
With the sun at centre found,
You’re our special shining star,
Even tho’ you’re so far….
Without you we’d not survive,
You make sure we stay alive,
You’re our special shining star
Even tho’ you’re so far….

(RAP)
Eight planets orbit round your sphere,
There’s Mercury, Venus, Earth – that’s here!
Then Mars and Jupiter follow us,
Next Saturn and then Uranus,
There’s one to go, there once were two,
From 9 to 8 the planet crew,
The last is Neptune , there’s your list,
Poor Pluto’s size means it’s dismissed (Ah!)

They’re the planets we all know,
Around the Sun they all do go,
Ever on their way…

It’s a system that turns round
With the sun at centre found,
You’re our special shining star,
Even tho’ you’re so far….
Without you we’d not survive,
You make sure we stay alive,
You’re our special shining star
Even tho’ you’re so far….

They’re not alone, as you will see,
They share their space quite happily,
With comets (clumps of frozen ice),
And meteors ( they look quite nice,
When falling in a blaze of light
From asteroids into the night.
At times they fall with fiery plume
A direct hit could well mean DOOM ( Argh!)

They’re the planets we all know,
Around the Sun they all do go,
Ever on their way…

It’s a system that turns round
With the sun at centre found,
You’re our special shining star,
Even tho’ you’re so far….
Without you we’d not survive,
You make sure we stay alive,
You’re our special shining star
Even tho’ you’re so far….

You’ll find them in the Milky Way,
In different sizes, by the way,
Earth has one moon, Jupiter more,
60 found so far the score!
Worlds of liquid, worlds of rock,
Worlds of gas all interlock,
While we’re here let’s show respect
For Planet Earth let’s all reflect (Ooooh!)

It’s a system that turns round
With the sun at centre found,
You’re our special shining star,
Even tho’ you’re so far….
Without you we’d not survive,
You make sure we stay alive,
You’re our special shining star
Even tho’ you’re so far….
