Space Explorers

Year 5 have been enjoying their Space Explorers topic so far this term.  They have measured the relative distances of the planets from the Sun with toilet rolls, created a scale model of the solar system using playdough and learned about why we have night and day.

When learning about the Apollo 11 mission to the Moon, the children travelled back to 1969 and became roving television news reporters.
