Pegasus, Orion & Unicorn Yrs 5/6

Topic this term:

Where is our place in Space?

 

 

Stargazing Evening

The Year 5/6 children hosted a great stargazing evening.  Each class produced a display of their work, incuding: the phases of the Moon, constellations and asteroids and comets.  They then shared their learning through demonstration, song and powerpoint. 

Thanks you very much to all parents who helped by bringing in the various cakes and cookies that went down very well.  We ended selling everything and raised a total of £137 to go towards the constellation plaque that the children will design for the top of the windmill.

We were fortunate enough to have an expert Astronomer, Jo, from the Space Detectives to come and hold a workshop for all of the children in Year 5/6. They completed a carousel of activities including: using VR to experience the solar system in 3D; designing their own planets; testing the laws of gravity; using a telescope to observe the surface of the sun!
