(Miss Barnes- 5.2)

Autumn Term 2017 - Space
Our topic this term will focus around Science and Art as Year 5 are travelling into Space. In Science we will be examining how the Earth, Sun and Moon move in relation to each other. We will investigate the movement of the Sun and how day and night are created and also discover what each of the lunar phases are. Later on, the children will examine Martian soils and create their own powerful rockets! Finally, I’m sure our own mnemonics will help us order the planets too! In Art we will closely look at the appearance of the Moon and learn how to create different shades of grey. In addition to this, we will study the work of artist Peter Thorpe. Over the coming weeks, we will create abstract art using paints and oil pastels and draw rockets to race through space with! Our topic will end with a final Space Day, where we will have a guest speaker from the Cambridge Institute of Astronomy, learn some basic training skills, launch our own rockets and attempt to land a Mars Rover! What a busy term ahead!

Please do download our Information Booklet to find out more about the routines and expectations in Year 5. You may also wish to take a look at the Y5 Curriculum Map, which shows you the topics we will be covering in different subjects over the course of the year.
