During ‘Independent Reading’ time you can access Rising Stars – Reading Planet using the login information that I sent to your email address.
Every other Thursday, Mrs Dodd will be teaching and there will be no ‘live’ Teams teaching in the afternoon. Activities will be posted on this page for these afternoons.
Every afternoon, I will post the Powerpoints that we have used for that day so that you can catch up with any learning that you missed/need to finish off.

This afternoon we are continuing on from yesterday’s History lesson. Yesterday we learnt about the invention of the telescope and how although it wasn’t Galileo who invented it, it was him who made it famous. Today, I would like you to imagine that it is 1609 and Galileo has just taken his improved telescope to the lawmakers in Venice (Italy) and shown them how to use it to look up at the Solar System.
You have three choices of activity today: 1. write a diary entry from Galileo’s point of view, describing the day that he took his telescope to the lawmakers in Venice; 2. write a diary entry from the point of view of one of the lawmakers, describing the day that Galileo came to share his telescope; or 3. write a newspaper article, detailing the invention and how it has changed the way that we see the universe. You should use the Galileo Information Sheet to help you to remember the key facts. If you choose to write a diary entry, you should include details about the invention and how it made the writer feel and if you choose to write a newspaper article you should also include the details about the invention but you can include quotes from other lawmakers or Galileo himself. Don’t forget to send your writing to me on Teams – I can’t wait to read it!
Wednesday (afternoon activity)
Listen to Elton John’s ‘Rocket Man’ and read the Rocket Man Lyrics. I would like you to create a poster factsheet about the song and artist (Do you like it? What do you like about it? What is the mood of the story? How do you know just from reading the lyrics? How is the song made up? (chorus/verse/etc.))
Tuesday (afternoon activity)
Monday (afternoon activities)
The Solar System is the collection of planets and their moons (together with smaller bodies, such as asteroids, meteoroids, and comets) which orbit around the Sun.
Today I would like you to use the website links below to find out about the Solar System. I would like you to find out the names of the planets and their moons and find out which planets are Jovian (gaseous) or terrestrial (rocky). Organise your research using a mind map. You should have at least 10 facts about the Solar System on your mind map.
Once you have collected your facts, use them to create a poster to display what you have found out (facts and pictures to show what you have found). You can create this on the computer or into your book – it’s up to you!
