Year 5 have been learning about Space and the Solar System this half term. We collaborated to make the Solar System in different ways; biscuits, split pins and papier mache

Year 5 went exploring around the Science and Media Museum. We found Tim Peake's Space Shuttle. It was amazing! We learned about the solar system and the planets. We also had the opportunity to explore the Wonderlab and watch the new IMAX film about the International Space Station.
This half term Year 5 have been learning 'Don't stop believing' by Journey. We began to understand the different types of music and the background and culture the song. We collaborated to learn the verses. We discussed different music techniques within the song such as pitch and tempo.
We developed into musicians to play the glockenspiel to the pulse of the music. We played different notes (F, G, A and Bb). We loved learning the song and look forward to performing it for another class.
As part of our topic this half term we went to explore the Leeds City Museum. We went on an Egyptian workshop where we were able to learn about the mummification process and well as make amulets. We found out lots about the Ancient Egyptians!
In our PE lesson we have been learning how to dance like an Egyptian!
