TOLMERS CAMPING TRIP PRESENTATION

**REMINDER- SWIMMING**

Your child’s first swimming session will begin on Monday 10th January so please ensure you have read the letter that details what swimming kit they will need.

Remember if children wish to bring goggles, they need to provide a letter from their parent/carer stating that they need to wear them to swim.

As we will be travelling by coach each Monday, please ensure your child brings a face mask with them to wear. 

Please contact your child’s class teacher if you have any further questions!

Swimming will be your child’s second PE slot so they will no longer need to come in wearing their PE kits on Tuesdays. Wednesday is their only other PE session so please send them in in their kits on this day only.

 

Autumn 2:

Snapshots into our learning! 

Art gallery: Have a look at the children’s amazing artwork inspired by Étienne Léopold Trouvelot, who often used pastels to draw what he had observed in space!

Wonderdome Visit 

Year 5 were lucky enough to step into outer space and experience the solar system up close and personal in our fantastic planetarium visit! The children were completely captivated by the images that moved all around them inside the Wonderdome- it gave them a real perspective of the sheer vastness of space and the titanic size of the celestial bodies. We were so impressed by all the information they had retained once we were back in class and quizzing them all- did you know that Europa (one of Jupiter’s moons) is known as the ‘Water World’ of the solar system and therefore could have life inhabiting it?!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We became the Solar system by using a trundle wheel to measure the scaled-down distance of planets from the Sun. We compared the steps it took each child (planet) to orbit the Sun to show that year lengths vary from planet to planet! Did you know it takes Neptune 165 years to orbit the Sun and Mercury only 88 days??
