Year 5

Space Explorers

The first half term has been a blast in Year 5, learning all about Space. The children have embraced the topic and have learnt all about our moon and solar system. They have shown great creativity and resourcefulness to explore this topic. Working in groups they used toilet paper to understand the relative distance of the planets from the sun, with one sheet representing an incredible 57,910,000 km. They also used play dough to create the planets and understand their respective sizes (making our Earth seem very small in comparison to the giants of Jupiter and Saturn). Lots of work has been done on the successful Apollo 11 mission and learning how one small step had such significance for mankind.
