Kingswood Primary Academy

Year 5 - Eagles

   Year 5 Teacher - Mr Egan

This term in year 5, we are learning all about Space. We started off by finding out about the planets in our solar system, and we now understand the way that these planets rotate and orbit. We were able to use this information to explain what causes night and day and why we have different seasons throughout the year. 

We have also found out about the moon landings, and even designed our own landing craft to bring our 'Eggnauts' safely back down to Earth!


In English, we have been reading 'Phoenix', by S F Said, which we are very much enjoying. We have also designed and described our own planets, as well as created new creatures to live on them. We are currently planning and writing space adventure stories, set on our mythical planets.
