Year 5/6

Autumn 1 Mission to Mars

In this topic, we will be inspired by the wonders of space.  Through virtual reality headsets we will take our own journey into space.  We will develop our scientific understanding of the solar system and the movement of the earth and moon around the sun. Having designed and created models of our own imaginary planets, we will write a report about our planets.  In English, we will also create fact files about space and write stories set in space.  In music, we will listen to a wide range of music inspired by space, including the Planets Suite by Holst, and compose our own music. We will describe the planets in French.  Our topic will finish by creating our own space-themed cam toys.
