Year 5: Topic Launch

After our launch, year 5 pupils shared their ideas of activities for our topic.  We put all the ideas in the concept map.  Ideas include making a Mars Rover and a rocket, fact file of the planets, finding out about the phases of the moon and the seasons. We also set out our key questions for the topic.
How big are the planets?
How do the planets orbit the sun?
When did the International Space Station go into orbit?
Why can’t we land on all planets?
How old are the planets and the sun?
How do we get seasons?
How did the Mars Rover get to Mars?
How does the Mars Rover land?
What would it be like to live on Mars?
How do we get day and night?
We are all really looking forward to starting the topic.
