Catherine Junior School

Together, we can do it!

National Space Centre

On Thursday, our Year 5 children took a trip to the National Space Centre, as part of their topic about Space. Everyone had a brilliant day, exploring, investigating, reading and listening.

The children explored the 42 metre high Rocket Tower, learning lots of facts about space exploration along the way.

They journeyed through a virtual solar system and experienced life as an astronaut in the planetarium show.

Take a look at a selection of photos from their exciting day.

Religious Education

This term, Year 5 have been learning about Hinduism in R.E. As part of the topic, we visited a mandir to explore and discover more about how and where Hindus worship. We were given a tour around the different areas within the mandir and had opportunities to ask questions.

Black Country Living Museum

This term we will be studying the novel Street Child, by Berlie Doherty. It is set in the Victorian period, so we went to experience life in Victorian times at the Black Country Living museum near Birmingham. We will also be studying the Victorians in our PBL project this term so it was brilliant to see how the Victorians lived.
