Hello Year 5 Scientists!
We know that you love Science, so we have got an additional challenge for you to work on if you dare.
Your challenge (if you choose to accept it) is to make a model linked to space.
It could be a model of a space scene, the solar system, star constellations, space rockets or something else of your own choosing. (Use your imagination.)
There is no time limit for this challenge as we understand that you will want to take your time to put lots of detail into your design and make it unique.
You will have the opportunity to earn up to 5 merits for your model so GOOD LUCK!
