Year 5 Spring 1 Curriculum Snapshot

"This half term, we have enjoyed our Space topic. We have learnt about the Solar System and the famous astronaut, Tim Peake. We have particularly enjoyed Music, Art and Computing this half term. In Computing, we were able to make a crab maze and coded it to make the crab move. In Art, it has been interesting learning different painting techniques to create a solar system and in Music, we have enjoyed composing our own piece of Space music using the app ‘Beatwave’."
