Year 5

Don’t Forget…

Earth and Space

This half term, in the afternoons, we have been learning about Earth and Space. So far, we have learnt about:

  • The Geocentric and Heliocentric models
  • The order of the planets and a fun way to help remember this
  • Individual planets and key facts about these.
  • Why Pluto now isn’t considered as a planet.

Our fun way of remembering the order is:

We have also linked our learning to our second piece of art work where we have created our own solar system. We have focused on many different artistic techniques such as sketching, painting, collaging, marbling and using chalks.

Here are some photos of the children working and their final pieces.

Homework Challenge

Maya Makers

Every half term, we set an optional homework challenge for our children. The challenge this half term was to create a Mayan temple linking to our History work. Here are some of the excellent temples created by the children. Well done everyone!

Harry Potter

On Wednesday 3rd and Thursday 4th, Year 5 were lucky enough to visit the Harry Potter Studio Tour. Both classes had amazing days (even after the long journey for the Puffins!) and learnt lots about how the films were created.

Here are some photos from both days.
