Space Shelters

Today we made space shelters to survive in on our new planet (well small versions of them). We came up with a criteria for our shelter: It had to stand on its own Be waterproof and fireproof Be bigger than a bed (so we could sleep) and taller than a person (so we could stand… Read more »

Fairtrade

Healthy Eating

We have been thinking about how we might survive on our planet. We tried some unusual planet food first: Then we looked at the different food types that make up our food. We learnt about the different food groups before sorting food into them.

Space Diaries

This week we started our new term imagining that we have crash landed on an unfamiliar planet. Each day we have been writing a diary entry using a different skill. Here are some of our diary entries.

Inequalities

Today we learnt about inequalities <> and =. We had forgotten which way they went when we compare numbers. We used balances to visualise the symbols. This helped us see that the inequality always ‘chomped’ the larger number. By the end we could solve problems like this: 23 < ? < 50

Digestion

We have been looking at the human body. We learnt about how astronauts bodies change in space, how our muscles work and more about the skeleton. On Tuesday we looked at digestion. To start with we shared what we already knew or thought. We found that there were lots of things we were not sure… Read more »
