Spring Term

Space Explorers

This term our IPC topic is Space Explorers.

In Science, we’ll be finding out:

  • How to compare the size of the planets and their distance from the Sun
  • About the movements of the Earth, Sun and Moon and how they affect us
  • How to classify rocks and compare rocks on Earth with those on the Moon
  • How craters are formed and the forces that are involved
  • How light travels
  • How to create a timeline to show the life cycle of a star
  • About the planets in our solar system

In History, we’ll be finding out:

  • About what people in the past used to think about the Earth, Sun and Moon
  • About Galileo and his findings about the Earth, Sun and Moon
  • About the constellations and the stories that they tell
  • How to make a timeline to show some of the important events in the history of astronomy and space

In Art, we’ll be finding out:

  • How we can create our own satellite images

In Technology, we’ll be finding out:

  • How to make a space rocket

In International, we’ll be finding out:

  • About the International Space Station (ISS)

Entry Point: Making our own rocket

Our entry point task was to make a rocket to take vital supplies from Earth to a space station. A lot of discussion and burst balloons quickly led to many successful rockets and a thrilled class.

Knowledge Harvest: Discussing facts about planets and space.

We had some fabulously heated discussions about how the tide is affected by the moon, how planets revolve around the Sun and why Pluto is now no longer classified as a planet.
