At the start of the Year 5 topic this term, Mr Ian announced that TX wouldn’t actually be moving to An Phu after Christmas, instead we would be moving to…MARS!
Whilst this wasn’t exactly true, it ignited the children’s imaginations as they began to consider what they would need in order to survive on Mars and how to get there.
We compared features of the Earth and Mars, researched existing and past Space projects and developed some ideas for technologies that we might need to use to travel, communicate and survive!
This culminated in an amazing display on Friday afternoon, as the children showed off some of the rockets that they had made at home to transport them to SPACE! A whole range of ideas were used in order to propel the rockets into the air and by the end of the display, Year 5 had gathered quite an audience of spectators!
A big thanks to all parents and carers who supported the children in their projects. Everyone had a fantastic afternoon of excitement!
