'To be the best you can be' - Article 29

Spring Term - Stargazers

This term, Year 4/5 are blasting off on a space adventure!

 

Learners will investigate the eight planets: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Also studying the Moon, a celestial body that orbits Earth.

 

Children will use their coding skills to move a rover to traverse a lunar landscape and work scientifically to investigate gravity, and what happens when there is none. Learners will compare times of day at different places on the Earth and use GPS satellite navigation systems to track objects.

 

Pupils will get in a spin making simple models of the Solar System and listen to the haunting sounds of space themed songs. Then it’s 3, 2, 1, blast off! Building and launching a rocket for an important test mission.
