Year 5 Engage- Stargazers

This term, the children’s new topic is, ‘Stargazers.’ Engage week begun with an introductory workshop to the Solar system from the Science Museum. The children learnt about how the Earth moves in space and how astronauts travel. During engage week, the children learnt the names of the different planets, including their order from the sun by learning a mnemonic phrase. The children then used information sheets and the iPads to learn planet facts and create ‘Top Trump’ cards. They also learnt about the different layers of the sun and what role each layer of the sun plays in the transfer of energy (light and heat). Additionally, the children have learnt about and created their own artwork of the Northern Lights using oil pastels.
