It looks like the aliens have been up to no good!... It is our job to try stop them and save our solar system from being destroyed. I am sure we will meet lots of significant historical figures along the way who may be able to help us...
Below is our class song for this half term.
Our adventure began when an alien had invaded earth and ended up in our school! They left behind evidence of their chaos, and we were shocked when we saw the hall. We decided we would follow the aliens to space to save the rest of the planets from being destroyed. Our writing this week is to create an advert persuading qualified people to apply for the job of our spaceship pilot.
I’m History, we recreated the first landing on the moon in 1969. We learnt how Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael changed History!
The mischievous aliens had hidden the key to space and we quickly realised we were trapped on planet escape! We had to solve the riddles and find the missing parts of the key. This week we will be recalling our puzzling experience through a diary entry.
In Music we learnt how to create long and short sounds with percussion instruments. Some of us even made our own rhythms.
In RE this week, we retold the story of the Good Samaritan through drama. The children worked in teams and performed their creations to the class.
In History, we have been comparing hospitals from the 19th century to the 21st century. We learnt about Florence Nightingale and her impact on hospitals today.
In Art, we have been exploring the artist ‘Van Gogh’, using his starry night artwork as inspiration for our own collating.
We have followed the aliens to planet Grub where we tried lots of space food. The children came up with adjectives to describe the food using our senses which we will then put in our final evaluation.
We learnt how to stay safe around Medicines and created posters to help educate other children!
Today we learnt about the parable of the Two Builders. The morale of the story was to always listen and follow advice of those wiser than us. We recreated the parable using stone and sand. We saw what happened when the storm came and the sea hit out houses.
This week we have continued following the aliens to Planet Inferno. Samuel Pepys sent us a message about the Great Fire of London, telling us about what he experienced and saw. We decided he would be the perfect person to join our team because he has experience of spotting fires! We wrote an invitation to Samuel to see if he was up for the mission...
Samuel Pepys Message
In History, we designed and built out own Victorian houses and then recreated the Great Fire of London on the school field. The children loved it!
In Music this week we have been composing our own melodies using crotchets, quavers and rests. The children wrote their compositions using the correct notation before performing it to the class.
Today we did a big mix of IT, History and writing as we researched Tim Peake in preparation for writing out fabulous non-chronological reports this week.
