Out of this World

In year 5, we will be investigating all things Space! Firstly looking at the history launches to the current news of the goings on in Space. The children will become scientists and become experts on the solar system. All of this knowledge will be shared with our parents and families on Thursday 3rd May at our ‘Night at the Oscars’ celebration evening. Within guided reading and English the children will be reading the humurous story, Cosmic by Frank Cottrell Boyce and Cosmic Disco Poems by Grace Nichols.
