Jodrell Bank Visit
On Thursday the 19th of April our Year 5 class visited Jodrell Bank. We had a fabulous time learning about living in Space during our 'Exploring Space' workshop, where we learned about life on the International Space Station. We also viewed exhibitions about the universe before undertaking some Space experiments. Finally, we had a wonderful talk about the Solar System.
Creating the Solar System
To make a model of our Solar System, our Year 5 Class read and completed a set of instructions, using imperative verbs and time adverbs . They then followed the instructions to roll clay spherical shapes for the planets, measuring each to scale in centimetres and millimetres using a conversion table. We have then painted them using photographs of each planet.
