Year 5 will be participating in PE lessons on Wednesday. Please ensure your child has plimsolls/trainers in school.
Term 4: The Earth and Space
This term we are looking at the Earth and Space. The children will explore the historical aspects of Space by looking at the space missions and history of British astronauts.
The children will be able to describe the movement of the Earth and other planets, relative to the Sun in the solar system. They will be able to describe the movement of the Moon relative to the Earth. They will be able to describe the Sun, Earth and Moon as approximately spherical bodies; use the idea of the Earth's rotation to explain day and night and the apparent movement of the Sun across the sky.
