Year 5 Space projects

Last term Year 5 were learning about astronomy, in particular about the sun, planets, gravity, solar and lunar eclipses.

They were then set the challenge of making space themed projects. The results were fantastic and have been on display in the Science Atrium during the beginning of this term. The models included, solar systems, rockets, Mars rovers, solar and lunar eclipses. A lot of effort was put in to making these great projects, well done everyone for your hard work and good luck with your Year 6 projects.
