Learning to shine together

RespectCouragePerseveranceAmbitionIndependence

Spring 1 - Stargazers

Journey through space, the final frontier. Navigate beyond the Sun, the magnificent, blazing star at the centre of our Solar System. Investigate the eight planets: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Take a look at the Moon, a celestial body that orbits Earth. Programme a rover to traverse a lunar landscape and work scientifically to investigate gravity, and what happens when there is none. Compare the times of day at different places on the Earth and use GPS satellite navigation systems to track hidden treasure. Get in a spin making simple models of the Solar System and listen to the haunting sounds of space themed songs. Then it’s 3, 2, 1, blast off. Build and launch a rocket for an important test mission. Exploring space is probably the greatest adventure that humankind has ever undertaken. Are we alone? Or are there other life forms out there?

Fun Facts

06/01/22 ENGAGE: Science - We learnt about the size of the different planets. We compared these to fruits so we could see the scale of the planets in relation to each other. We learnt the order of the planets by comparing these and ordering them by size.

06/01/22 ENGAGE: Science - We learnt about day and night by exploring how the Earth rotates around the Sun using a torch and a globe. We looked at our country in comparison with countries on the other side of the world. We were able to recognise when morning, day, evening and night time would be.

06-07/01/22 ENGAGE Art - We learnt about tints, shades and tones. We learnt how to create these with the hues we had chosen. We used our knowledge to create a painting of the planet Jupiter in space. We then used pencils to draw patterns over the top to show different textures.

07/01/22 Music - West and South African Music - We learnt a song called 'Shosholoza' roughly translated as 'The Click Song'. We learnt how to sing this and that it was a call and response song.

11/01/2022 Science - We learnt about the Moon, Earth and Sun and their relation to each other. We enjoyed finding out facts about these and comparing them. We then used our knowledge to create a moving model to show how they rotate around each other.

12/01/2022 PE: Gymnastics - We learnt about balances. We know balances have to be steady or still. We created balances with our partner using our own creativity.

13/01/2022 Art: Phases of the Moon - We learnt about the different phases of the Moon. We recreated some of these shapes through using stencils and printing. We used our knowledge of tints and shades from last week to support changing the colours.

14/01/2022 Music: Playing Shosholoza - We learnt about chords and how to play notes and majors. We played in time with a partner. We also learnt how to play as an emsemble.

January - Moon pictures taken by Year 5 at home.

17/01/22 - Eva has created these fantastic home videos of news reports related to our learning about Space and the Moon. 

20/1/22 DEVELOP: Science - We learnt about gravity. We investigated gravity through lots of partner challenges. These showed us that it your centre of gravity is very important.

20/01/22 - DEVELOP: Science - We learnt about gravity. We investigated gravity by putting a 'light' object in one cup and a 'heavy' object in the other cup. We dropped these at the same time and predicted which would drop first. We proved that gravity pulls both objects to the ground.

20/01/22 - DEVELOP: Science - We learnt about different craters. We learnt how these are created and then looked at how the mass and size of an object can alter the crater size. We experimented this with three balls with different masses.

20/01/22 DEVELOP: Science - We learnt about craters. In these videos you can see, we are dropping balls of different sizes and masses from the same height to see how this effects the size of the crater created. 

Home Learning - Some more fantastic home learning shared this week.

27/01/22 DRAMA - We learnt about how it might feel to be in Space.

27/01/22 DRAMA - We learnt how it might feel to be in space. The atmosphere was created through lights and a space themed parachute. We used descriptive language and through our imagination described what we might see, hear, smell, touch and feel in space. Straight after this lesson, we used what we had learnt to help write our Messy Write biography on the first astronaut to go in outer space.

28/01/22 MUSIC - We learnt about how drumming is a very important part of African music. We listened to different pieces of African music and learnt how they play the drum in different ways to make different types of sounds. We then put this into action playing a piece together as a class using our new skills on the drums.

01/02/22 DEVELOP Science - We learnt about the best products for insulation. We tested three different materials and measured the temperature of water at time intervals to see which held the temperature the best.

03/02/22 LOVE TO INVESTIGATE: Science - We learnt about how the Earth, Sun and Moon move in relation to each other. We then became the different celestial bodies and modelled these movements.

03/02/22 LOVE TO INVESTIGATE: How clean are your hands? We used agar plates to learn about how clean our hands were. We rubbed our fingers (one bare and one gloved) along the jelly to see the reactions.

03/02/22 INNOVATE - Computing: We learnt about a range of rockets, including how they look and how they launch. We used our research to make notes and sketches of what we wanted for our own rockets.

04/02/22 INNOVATE - Design Technology: We learnt how to attach, design and persevere during the making process.

07/02/22 - Year 5 have been learning about binary code in their computing lessons. They completed up to an 8-bit binary challenge, trying to work out the decimal numbers produced by the codes.

07/02/22 - Year 5 have been learning about binary code in their computing lessons. They completed up to an 8-bit binary challenge, trying to work out the decimal numbers produced by the codes.

08/02/22 INNOVATE - Design Technology/Science - We used air pressure power to try to make our rockets fly. We had to perform test runs before the launch day.

The Launches

10/02/22 LOVE TO INVESTIGATE: How clean are your hands? We used agar plates to learn about how clean our hands were. We looked at the results after a week.

11/02/22 INNOVATE CHALLENGE - Design Technology: We were proud of what we achieved aesthetically.

13/02/22 LOVE TO INVESTIGATE: How clean are your hands? We used agar plates to learn about how clean our hands were. Mrs Kay looked at the results after 10 days.
