Welcome back Year 5!
This term you are journeying into space this Autumn term with our topic ‘Stargazers!’
Journey through space, the final frontier. Navigate beyond the Sun, the magnificent, blazing star at the centre of our Solar System. Investigate the eight planets: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Take a look at the Moon, a celestial body that orbits Earth. Compare the times of day at different places on the Earth and understand why we have day and night. Get in a spin making simple models of the Solar System and listen to the haunting sounds of space themed songs. Then it’s 3, 2, 1, blast off. Build a model of a lunar landscape complete with a rocket. Exploring space is probably the greatest adventure that humankind has ever undertaken. Are we alone? Or are there other life forms out there?
Additionally, within our VIPERS and writing sessions we will explore the book 'Alone on a wide, wide sea' by Michael Morpurgo. A story about a six-year-old orphan, Arthur Hobhouse who is shipped to Australia after WWII and loses his sister, his country and everything he knows. Arthur overcomes enormous hardships with his fellow orphan Marty and is finally saved by the extraordinary people he meets. We can't wait for you to read this one!
