Earth and Space

Our learning about this out-of-this world topic is supported by the wonderful book 'Cosmic' by Frank Cottrell-Boyce. We are really encouraging Year 5 to develop their love of learning and give them access to high-quality texts. We have the reading bug in Year 5 and we hope it spreads!

Our English lessons will also be based around this book to give the children a real immersion into the topic. Ask your child about what they know about this incredible topic and encourage them to read more about it.
