Year 5 taught Year 2 all about planets in the solar system. Year 5 created curiosity capsules which included facts about a specific planet, a model of the planet, a letter from an alien who lives on the planet, as well as a word search. Year 5 thoroughly enjoyed teaching Year 2 and Year 2 loved learning all about space.
Structure of the Earth
Year 5 have been looking at the structure of the earth as part of our topic on Natural Disasters. We made our own models of the earth and identified the inner core, outer core, mantle and crust. We have also been learning about the crust of the earth, and how this is made up of tectonic plates.
