Welcome to class Jupiter!

Welcome to a brand new year and what an exciting start we have had. Our topic this term is space and alongside a new topic, we have a new code of conduct and new homework planners.

 

We have also been place in new houses. Each of us sat in assembly and hovered our hand over the magical space orb which has placed us in one of four houses: Altair, Sirius, Polaris or Rigel.

To begin our topic we have been learning all about the planets. One group used books and the internet to create this information poster:

In English we have been busy improving the accuracy of our punctuation. We have been focusing on inverted commas, apostrophes and commas. Have a look at some of the work we have been doing:

We have been learning about orbits and rotation. We used balls to show the relationship between the Earth, Moon and Sun.

 

We have been learning about the space race. First we created a timeline to show key events in both USA and Russia (Soviet Union) space history. Then we focused on the moon landing. We watched a short documentary and then wrote a newspaper article focusing on the consiracy theories. Then we wrote a playscript for a news report and filmed our news report.
