What is a force?
What holds us on the ground?
How are we able to jump up and down?
How does a car move or an aeroplane fly?
This term we are learning all about space.
We have made up mnemonics to help us remember the names of the planets.
Can you make up your own?
In Science, we have been studying all about living things and what makes them special.
DID YOU KNOW THAT IN ORDER FOR SOMETHING TO BE CLASSED AS LIVING THEN IT HAS TO DO ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SEVEN THINGS:
Well wonder no more because 5D have the answers. We have been investigating why this happens and we started with the fact that the sun doesn't move. We used globes, blu tac and torches to try and explain how night and day happen. Here is our theory:
The Sun does not move but in fact it is us on Planet Earth that moves! Don't worry- you cant feel it.
As we rotate on our axis we are passing the sun. So the part of the earth that is facing the sun is in daylight and the part that is facing away, is in darkness, or night time.
Ask us to show you if you're still not sure.
We have been studying our Solar System.
The planets in our Solar System are:
Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto (dwarf planet.)
This week our task was to create a mnemonic to help us remember the order of the planets from the Sun. Here are some we made up:
Jamie: My Very Evil Minatare Jaguar Swallowed Up Nan's Pug
Alex: Mighty Venus Educates My Jolly Sister Unless Nothing Participates
Kelly: My Very Educated Mother Just Speeds Up Never Playing
Libby: My Very Earthlike Mind Just Sleeps Unlike Newly-discovered Puppies
