This first half term, Year 5 have been busy with all things connected to our space topic.

We have been studying the disastrous voyage of Apollo 13 on their mission to the moon, from which we have based all of our English writing.

In our topic lessons we have studied the orbit of the Earth , Sun and Moon and made pin wheels to show their orbits.

In Maths we have studied place value and recapped the formal written calculation methods for column addition and subtraction.
