Year 5 Science task on the planets

Year 5 came to use the Senior Campus Library this afternoon. Miss Andrews has set up a wonderful task involving locating information on an allocated planet (today’s lesson) followed by making scaled models of the planets. The grand finale will be a scaled model laid out in our sports centre showing the relationship of each of the planets to each other and to the sun.

The students were very involved in finding information and left, some clutching relevant books, with the research component more or less finished.

It was great to be able to work with the students, who know me from teaching their Library lessons in the Junior Campus Library, in the setting that they will inhabit from the start of next year.
