Autumn Term

So far this autumn term, Year 5 have really enjoyed learning about space and in particular the Moon Landing. The children have made space rocket models, biscuits you can eat in space and used different computer programs to simulate a rocket launch, which then orbits the Earth.


The children have also enjoyed reading George’s Secret key to the Universe, which has really influenced some of their writing. They have written some very descriptive pieces, detailing what it would be like to go into space. They were also given the opportunity to do some free writing with only the title of ‘Alien Encounter’ given to them. Some of their excellent stories are now on display.


To cap the topic off, the children visited the Science Museum, where they were able to learn even more about space by watching 3D movies on the Hubble Telescope, The Moon Landing and Planet Earth.


During Autumn term 2, we will be learning all about the World Wars, so stay tuned for some wonderful pieces of poetry and your children regaling you with interesting facts about the conflicts.
