Year 5 performed their assembly to the school on Monday and their parents on Thursday. Based on the theme of Space, the children took their audience back in time to see what life was like for the astronauts who took part in the ‘Great Space Race’ in the 1960s. The cast were animated and fluent with excellent singing and lively dancing!
The Earth, Sun and Moon topic forms a core part of the Year 5 Science syllabus. The children have recently looked at the planets, seasons, night and day and international time zones. Through producing their assembly, it has helped the Year 5 children gain to a further understanding of the history of Space and how astrology has developed over the years.
Well done Year 5!
