Welcome to Year 5!

 

 

Fab-u-lous Fencing 

 

Year 5 had a fabulous time in our fencing taster session.  We learnt how to get ready, advance, retreat and lunge. We even had our own fencing battle on the field!

Learning in Action Year 5

Thank you to all those adults who made the year 5 learning action session a huge success.  We had lots of fun creating our orrery to show the solar system in the night sky.

Our topic this half term is all about Earth and Space

We began our topic by investigating the most likely soil samples that could have come from Mars.

 

Planetarium Visit

 

Year 5 enjoyed a very exciting and informative trip to the South Downs Planetarium on Monday 25th September. We were able to ask questions to a real scientist and explore the planets and stars in the planetariums dome. In the dome, we laid back and watched as we saw the night sky as we had never seen it before with thousands of stars in our galaxy, the Milky Way, projected above us. We saw NASA’s international space station and were even able to explore sections of it. We learnt about the planets in our own solar system and the phases of the moon. We held a part of an asteroid that was 45 million years old, it was definitely the oldest thing we have ever held. It was a brilliant trip.

 

Did You Know?

You wouldn’t be able to walk on Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus or Neptune because they have no solid surface!

If you could fly a plane to Pluto, the trip would take more than 800 years!

There are more stars in the universe than grains of sand on all the beaches on Earth. That’s at least a billion trillion!
