Year 5 – Term 3 Space Incursion
This term the Year 5 students have been learning about Our Place in Space as part of their Inquiry unit. In week 2, we had an exciting and informative incursion with Steph Spincer, from Scientifically Speaking, about The Solar System and Space.
We learnt all about the different objects in our Solar System including the planets, moons, asteroid belts and meteorites. We also found out about the different types of environments the planets in the Solar System have and about the Milky Way.
All of the Year 5 classes found it very beneficial and were pleasantly surprised to learn that instead of there being millions of stars in The Solar System, there is in fact only one – The Sun!
