SCM 2015
Our Solar System

Welcome to the Teachers' Section

Here you will find a variety of resources to assist you in teaching about the Solar System, stamps and stamp collecting in middle and primary years (years 3 to 7). There is a five-lesson unit of work focused on the Solar System, along with extra, curriculum-linked lesson ideas relating to the Solar System and stamps. These are all supported with activity sheets available in pdf and IWB formats (where appropriate). We have also provided a curriculum overview table that outlines links to the Science, Mathematics and English learning areas.

You will also find some facts about the planets featured on this year's Stamp Collecting Month (SCM) stamps and general information about stamps and stamp collecting.

In the Students section there is information about our Solar System (to support the unit of work), this year's SCM theme, stamps and stamp collecting.
