Focus on Year 5 Burton


Year 5 Burton have been exploring our Solar System in Science this Term. As part of the unit we have researched the celestial objects which form part of our Solar System and produced posters of our findings. We have learned about the three rules for What Makes a Planet a Planet: 

  1. It must orbit a star (our star is the sun)
  2. It must be rounded by its own gravity (sphere shaped)
  3. It must clear it's orbit. 

To connect with our learning in other subject areas we produced artistic representations or our Solar System in Art and we are developing interactive Space Powerpoint Quizzes, with internal and external hyperlinks, to test and extend our classmates' knowledge and understanding.
