In Spring Year 5 are exploring outer Space, looking at movement of the planets and our Earth around the sun and finding out about the first man on the moon. We are reading sci-fi novel 'A Wrinkle in Time' by Madeline L-engle, placing it in its historical context. We are taking our space exploration to the Bedford School planetarium before moving on to look in greater depth at our own planet after half term. 

We are exploring the work of artist Andy Goldsworthy, using 'found art' to create sculptures and putting our mapping skills to the test with a cycle lock challenge around the village later in the term.
