In Year 5, we have had a fantastic half-term so far, getting stuck into our topic ‘Space- The Final Frontier’! We have kick-started this half term with Mr Gwynn and Dr Lenn’s Orrery which has lead us to a D&T project we will be continuing over the next few weeks. The project involves creating a space themed marble run with a black hole gobbling the marble up at the end. We have learnt all about the planets in our solar system as well as the movement of the earth around the sun. Next we will be focussing on how light travels, how our eyes take in information so we can see, the phases of the moon and looking at forces such as gravity.

In Maths, we have been understanding and manipulating larger numbers and will be going into addition, subtraction, multiplication and division in more depth.

In Literacy, we have been learning to write a setting description of space which we will write over the next few weeks before writing a description of a rocket’s take off and landing.

As December approaches, we will be finishing our Space topic and then start looking towards Christmas with a range of exciting artistic activities, including contributing to the village’s Christmas tree decorations!
