We started this term with an exciting launch morning in Year 5 where we took part in 3 different activities to do with our topic ‘Out of this World’.
Completing an investigation for NNSA, we investigated a range of meteorites and then made an edible meteorite – yummy! We also learnt about the order of the planets in our solar system and their relative sizes. Our third challenge was to create a moon lander that could land from a height and not spill the precious cargo of some marshmallows!
In English we have begun to study a book that is unsettling us – something strange is going on! We’ll be finding out more as the week goes on. In our reading sessions, we are learning about ‘The Space Race’, which has been fascinating already.
