Chapter 15 (part 1) "Ice cream man of the Gobi desert"

Science with Mrs Marshall

Hi Class 5,

I hope that you are enjoying our Science topic on Space. I know that you will have learnt a lot about space in other lessons with Miss Orr so I am really looking forward to finding out how much you know when we are all together again.

This week in Science I'd like you to find out about how we get day and night here on Earth. I have linked some BBC Bitesize videos for you to watch below. After you've watched them I would like you to write an explanation of how day and night occurs, including diagrams. There are also some templates for you to use if you'd like to, please decide which of the two you will use or maybe you can set out your writing in your own way. If you have any books at home on Space maybe you could do some research of your own to help you with your explanation.

Enjoy your space exploration Class 5!

Listen to this piece of Music by Holst.  What does it make you think of? What picture do you have in your mind when you hear this? Why don't you try and put your ideas down on a piece of paper and and show what the music has inspired! In school, we thought of magical forests or scenes from space.
