How the world works!

Posted by year5


To introduce and provoke thinking about our planet and the solar system, Year 5 students have been visited by the Discovery Dome igloo and by our own resident ‘space nut’ Mr O’Brien for a fascinating look into EARTH and SPACE.

We have visited the planets, heard about the Goldilocks zone, seen tardigrades and pink methane ice worms, watched Curiosity Rover land on Mars and been in awe at the size, time and distances in Space.

We have lots more to see and learn over the next weeks as we explore our central idea, ‘Earth’s position in space and relationship with the sun and moon makes life sustainable.’

Hopefully we will have lots of ‘space nuts’ by the end of this inquiry!
