Spring 1: Space
During Spring 1 Year 5 explored Earth from Space and the Solar System. We used mathematical skills to measure the distance and size of planets. We described the movement of the Moon in relation to Earth to link with 5SK's 1969 Moon Landing assembly. Also, we looked at Peter Thorpe's abstract art and created our own using his artistic techniques.
What we read:
The Jamie Drake Equation by Christopher Edge
What we wrote:
An informal letter about astronaut training.
A newspaper report and radio script about the discover of a new planet.
