Spock and Zoob’s Leaving Party!

Alien Landing in Reception!


Yesterday in year 5, we had the chance to enter a Planetarium! It was a really interesting experience and we learnt lots of different things. We couldn’t take any pictures as it was really dark, but we will remember our time in the Planetarium as it was so interesting!

The Solar System

Since we have had our alien visitors in Reception we have been fascinated by what might be really out there. So this week we have been learning lots about Space and the planets we find there.

This song has helped us to find out information about the different planets.

The children have written their own non-fiction book all about the different planets to tell others about the facts they have learnt.

The children learnt the order of the planets and knew that they orbit the sun.

We used pastels to create our own solar system pictures.
