Yesterday we were lucky enough to have a talk from Mr Shields about our solar system. He taught us about our earth, sun and moon and how satellites are launched into space. We had the opportunity to speak to a real scientist and see parts of a real satellite. Have a look at the photos below.
Today Year 5 created a model of the solar system using fruit. They worked out a scale and placed the fruit in the correct place based on their scale. They chose the fruit based on the size of the planet.
Which planet do you think was represented by our the watermelon (our biggest fruit)?
What do you think we used for Mercury?
A reminder that it is our World War II day on Friday. Children are asked to come dressed as someone from the Second World War. This could include an evacuee, a soldier, a nurse, an air warden or something of their choice.
You may also wish to bring a World War II inspired packed lunch. Try to be creative with this.
We are asking for a £2 donation towards the cost of the workshop.
We look forward to seeing all of your costumes on Friday.
Welcome to our new Year 5/6 blog. We will post photos of our learning and keep you up-to-date with the fun we are having. Please feel free to comment and respond to posts.
We would like to start by welcoming back our Year 6 farmers. They had a fantastic time at Nethercott Farm last week and have come back with many stories of the exciting times they had. If you haven’t already seen the photos on our Facebook page, we will be posting some on the blog soon.
Year 5 are enjoying their bikeability week with some children riding a bike for the first time. They have been praised for their enthusiasm and mature and sensible attitude. We hope they enjoy the rest of their week.
Can you post a quiz question linked to our science topic – Earth, Sun and Moon – for others to try and answer.
I’ll go first, how many planets are there in the solar system and which is the smallest planet?
