Year 5's 'Out of this World' Space Day!

Y5_Space

To end our space topic, ‘Out of this World’, both Year 5 classes had a space-themed day where they could come to school dressed up and take part in lots of space related activities. There were aliens, astronauts, NASA workers and Men in Black to name but a few. The costumes were amazing!

We started our morning with the Harvest Festival and Year 5 sang their own lyrics to the Star Wars theme! The children then completed an activity in class where they had to interview an alien. The alien had come down to Earth and had abducted the Year 5 teachers and left them with a tattoo on their arm. We had to find out what the alien wanted and why he was on Earth. We recorded the interviews on the iPads and one person acted in role as the interviewer and the other person was in role of the alien.

In the afternoon the children completed an astronomy quiz before watching a live video of Tim Peake in space. He discussed how different life was in space and how they could even play ping pong with a water bubble. After that we completed some of our own astronaut tests before finishing the afternoon trying dried space food. The dried ice-cream was definitely a firm favourite! Y5 had a fun-filled day - an enjoyable way to end our first topic.
