Welcome to Year 5
Our fantastic topic this half term is..
Journey through space, the final frontier… Navigate beyond the sun, the magnificent, blazing star at the centre of our solar system! Investigate the 8 planets- Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Take a look at the moon, a celestial body that orbits Earth.
Exploring space is probably the greatest adventure that humankind has ever undertaken. Are we alone or are there other life forms out there?

* Look at the exciting space race between USA and USSR (Russia).
* Look at forces linked to space in Science.
* Look at the similarities and differences between the Creationist Theory and Big Bang Theory regarding how the world began.
