Science in Year 5

In Science this term, the Year 5’s are looking at Earth’s place in space. They have studied the movements of the Sun and Moon in relation to the Earth, and have investigated these movements using Styrofoam balls and torches to show the effects of ‘day’ and ‘night’ in our sky. The students have also looked at the scientific process to discover how Eratosthenes used evidence to support his claim that the Earth is round.
