Welcome to Birch Class!
This term our topic is: Stargazers!
Journey through space, the final frontier…
Investigate the eight planets – Mercury, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Take a look at the Moon, a celestial body that orbits the earth.
Programme a ‘rover’ to traverse a lunar landscape and work scientifically to investigate gravity, and what happens when there is none! Compare the time of day at different places on Earth and use GPS satellite navigation system to track hidden treasure. Get in a spin making simple models of the Solar System and listen to hauntings of space themed songs.
Then it’s three, two, one… BLAST OFF! Build and launch a rocket for an important test mission.
Exploring space is probable the greatest adventure that humankind has ever undertaken. Are we alone or are there other life forms out there?
Here are some examples of our Home Learning projects:
In Birch Class, parents were invited in for our 'Coding Morning'.
During this session we created our own street art graffiti using a coding programme called Kano.
Here are some feedback bubbles that we received:
