Hi Year 5, this half term in Science we will be learning about the Earth and Beyond. Yesterday we started the topic and filled in our cover sheets about what we already know and what we would like to learn.
You started doing your own independent research and found out some interesting facts about the sun, the planets in our Solar System, space, space exploration, asteroids, comets, meteors, astronauts and many other things.
I would like you to read the texts below and then use your inference and deduction skills to answer the questions in full sentences, that are multi-clause sentences full of information.
Where is Earth and what does it do?
What the other planets in our Solar System called?
How are the planets different in terms of orbit?
Why does the Earth have a leap year (with 366 days) every 4 years?
How long does it take for the Earth to spin around?
How are daylight and darkness created?
How do the seasons affect the amount of daylight we have?
What affects how much of the moon we can see?
Would you expect to find water on the light side of the moon?
Can you do your own research and find out what an eclipse is?
Well done for a great first lesson year 5, this topic will be really fun and I’m looking forward to seeing what else we find out.
Miss Bhandal :)
