This term's topic is "Earth and space" so we will be looking at a variety of subjects based around the solar system and also looking at the Space Race and all of the key moments in space travel in the last 60 years, including thinking about the future of space travel.
We have The Learning Dome coming to see us on 26th October to talk to us about planets and constellations in the sky. This will be an excellent interactive workshop for the children that they should really enjoy!
We also have Mr Walker from the Wider Opportunities program coming in to teach the children to play guitar, beginning on Thursday 21st September. All guitars are provided by Surrey ArtsYear 5 Curriculum Grid Autumn Term
Mr Walker has recommended that all children log onto Kids Guitar Zone, which has lots of free lessons so they can practice at home even without a guitar! Here is the link http://www.kidsguitarzone.com/
