Making the most of some rare autumn sunshine to enjoy some lessons outside, Year 5 went on a fact-finding mission in science this week.

As part of their topic on the Earth in Space, they had to complete a fun planet-fact trail and learn more about the planets in our Solar System.

Which planet has the longest day?

Which one is the largest? How many moons does Saturn have? How long is a year on Jupiter? We now know all the answers!

Back in class, the children got to work ordering the planets using different sets of criteria.

There was an impressive mix of fun, determination and the Oakhill enthusiasm for learning, shown by the children as they completed their challenges.
