Welcome to Year 5!

Autumn 1

Year 5 – Foxes and Badgers- Mrs Johnson and Miss Hall 



Year 5 are currently studying the topic Earth and Space. Our topic will explore the amazing planets in our Solar System and whether they are rocky or gassy planets. We will be designing and then constructing a space buggy in DT. During World Space Day we will be undergoing training in order to become astronauts.


In English, we are reading GEORGE’S SECRET KEY TO THE UNIVERSE, By Stephen and Lucy Hawking. We are learning about persuasive language and will be writing letters to persuade George’s parents to buy him a computer. 


Our science topic this half term will be exploring the movement of the moon in relation to Earth. We will also be using the idea of the Earth’s rotation to explain day and night.
