Topic 

Greetings Earthlings!  

We will continue our exploration of The Solar System today, in preparation for producing a PowerPoint presentation, next week. 

To prepare for producing your PowerPoint presentations, you will research information about the 8 planets of the solar system, as well as the sun, which is at the very centre of this amazing system. 

To get your research started, watch these two storybots videos, by clicking on the following links– you’ll be rapping and tapping your feet along in no time (baseball caps optional!). Just don’t forget to make notes, as you watch, concerning facts about each of the planets and the sun.  

Think about how you can use headings to organise your notes, so that all of the information, that you find, about each of the planets, can be found in one place.  

Also, don’t forget to use the ‘pause’ button, if you need to, as you watch each video clip, so that you don’t miss any important information, as you make your notes.  

1)Storybots clip about the sun:

2)Storybots clip about the planets of the solar system: 

StoryBots | Learn The Planets In The Solar System | Outer Space Songs For Kids | Netflix Jr – YouTube 

I’m sure that you’ll enjoy watching them both – I know that I did! 

To add to your research notes, also take a look at the following websites: 

Solar System Facts for Kids | Planets for Kids | Geography | Quiz (kids-world-travel-guide.com) 

On this website, scroll down until you reach ‘PLANET FACTS FOR KIDS’.  

All About the Planets | NASA Space Place – NASA Science for Kids 

On this website, click on the cartoon pictures of each planet, to find out more.  

You will find lots of fascinating facts, on both of these websites. Remember, to not just copy everything down – you will need to decide upon the important information that you want to include. (The focus of your PowerPoint presentation will be the sun and the planets of the solar system, so make sure that you only make notes relating to these things.) 

Although you will need to write your notes in a clear manner, they do not need to be written in full sentences. 

When you have finished making your notes, make sure that you put them somewhere safe, so that you can use them, next week, when you start to work on your Solar System PowerPoint presentation. 

Remember, if you don’t have enough time, today, to complete your research, then you can continue with today’s task, over the weekend, for ‘homework’. 

I hope that you enjoy today’s learning.  

Remember, you will find next week’s home learning on ‘Microsoft Teams’ – so make sure that you’ve got your log in details ready. 

Keep safe, keep smiling and be kind. 

You all remain in my thoughts and prayers,

This 11-page document takes you through all of the work for today and contains links to some websites and video clips, which will help you, to complete the activity well.  

Maths 

Calculating with Time 

In yesterday’s Maths lesson, you learnt all about converting units of time. In today’s session, you will apply your knowledge to an activity about calculating with time, which is linked to the rotation of the planets of The Solar System. 

Watch this video clip, which will remind you about analogue and digital time, which will be useful for today’s activity: 

What is analogue and digital time? – BBC Bitesize 

You might also want to re-watch yesterday’s maths video clip, for a reminder about converting units of time. (You can find this in Wednesday’s Maths home learning section.) 

You will notice, on today’s activity sheet, that there are stars next to each of the planet’s names.  

The stars indicate the level of difficulty, for each calculation – the more stars, the harder it is.  

You should all be able to attempt the 1-star questions, but you might decide to challenge yourself, today, by attempting the 2 and 3-star questions, too.  

  • Calculating with Time for today’s activity sheet. (The answers can be found on page 2 of this document. But no sneaky peeking at the answers, until you’ve attempted all of the questions!) 
  • Click on Calculating with time activity sheet example – question 1, for an outline of the calculation needed to solve question 1, from today’s activity sheet, in case you get stuck. 

Computing 

Code 

In today’ computing session, you will be introduced to the concept of code. 

First watch this introduction video clip, where you will ‘visit’ another St Saviour’s Primary School, in London!   

Computing KS1 / KS2: Programming a computer game – BBC Teach 

Now, you will get started with some basic concepts of code.  

To do this, you will complete ‘Space Quest’, which you can access by clicking on this link: 

Beware of Aliens (tynker.com) 

Work your way through the 11 levels, of this coding activity, by following the on-screen instructions.  

You will need to create a set of instructions (or code) using blocks, which fit together like pieces of a jigsaw.  

The activity starts off easy peasy, then gets a little more difficult as you move through the 11 levels.  

Please make sure that you stick with it and don’t give up too soon. And most of all – have fun! 

Take care every one – be sure to visit the school’s website again, tomorrow, where you’ll find more home learning. 

Keep safe, keep smiling and be kind. 

You all remain in my thoughts and prayers,

R.E. 

Yesterday, we began our new R.E. topic, ‘Mission’, by exploring the inspirational work of Elly Jansen, the founder of the charity ‘The Richmond Fellowship’. 

In your work, yesterday, you researched one of the listed charities to find out which inspirational person founded the charity and why. 

Today, you will be using your research notes, to create a written fact file or a PowerPoint presentation, based upon the founder of the charity, who you researched, yesterday. 

Use slides 4-8, from my PowerPoint (which you can find listed under the home learning section, from yesterday, Monday 11th January) as inspiration for your work today. 

Make sure that your fact file/PowerPoint presentation includes the following information: 

1) An introduction, which includes background information about the founder of the charity. 

2) Information about what inspired the person to start this charity. 

3) How did the charity begin? What was it like at the start? Where was it first set up? 

4) What is the aim of the charity? What do they want to do to make a difference? (What is their mission?) 

5) How has the charity developed, since it was first founded?  

As well as including this information, within your fact file/Power Point, you will also need to think about how you organise your work, as well as adding any suitable pictures, to make it look really appealing, to the reader. You might want to revisit some of the websites, which you explored yesterday, when you conducted your research and use pictures from here, to add to your work. 

For those of you creating a PowerPoint presentation, you might want to watch some of these short tutorial videos, for how to improve the appearance of your presentation – but remember, work on the content of your presentation first, then think about its appearance. Have fun!

-Work through the PowerPoint, at your own pace, taking time to reflect  upon and answer the key questions, based upon the information included. 

-Your activity, for today, which can be found on the final slide of today’s PowerPoint, will be to research one of the listed charities and to find out which inspirational person founded the charity and why. 

-Record all of the information, that you find, thinking carefully about how you can use headings to organise what you discover. (e.g. Name of charity, who founded the charity? Why did they set up the charity? And any other headings which you may think are important.) 

-Make sure that you keep your research notes safe, from today’s R.E. lesson, as you will need to use them in tomorrow’s lesson. Also, make sure that you save or make a note of any websites, that you used for your research, so that you can easily revisit them, if you need to, in tomorrow’s related task.

Topic 

Yesterday, you learnt about the eight planets of our Solar System and created a mnemonic to help you remember the order of these planets, from the sun, the star at the very centre of our Solar System. 

How effective is your mnemonic? Can you remember it? Can you use your mnemonic to recite the correct order of the eight planets, of the Solar System, from the sun? Well done if you can – I’m very impressed! 

Today, you will draw and label a picture of the solar system. Revisit the BBC Bitesize page, from yesterday, if you want to recap on what the eight planets look like: 

What is the solar system? – BBC Bitesize 

If this link doesn’t work, then please type the following web address: 

www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zdrrd2p/articles/ztsqj6f 

You will notice that the planets all look rather different from one another, in terms of their size and colour, so make sure that your labelled diagram reflects this, as well as having the planets arranged in their correct order, from the sun (which should also be included in the diagram). 

Here’s a blank template, which you can use, to help you create your own diagram, with suggestions for colours to mix, if you have them, or to inspire your own diagram. 

Once you’ve created your Solar System diagram, you might want to have a go at creating your own Solar System model, that is ‘out of this world’. Take a look at this amazing video clip, for more information: 

Planets in our Solar System | DIY Science Project | Easy To Do Solar System Model 

If this link doesn’t work, then please type the following web address: 

You don’t have to use the exact materials, suggested in the video, to create your solar system model. Use your imagination – maybe you could use foil instead of metallic paint, empty cereal boxes instead of card – be imaginative and get creative. (Please remember, though, to ask permission, from your adults at home, before you use any resources, for this project.)  

It will be great to see any photos of your finished diagrams and models – so please email them to the school, so that we can celebrate your learning and admire your wonderful work

Topic 

Our new topic, this term, is ‘Space and Beyond’. Over the next few weeks, we will be learning about The Solar System, as well as focusing on some of the features and inhabitants of our very own planet Earth. 

Today, you will be finding out what The Solar System is and its eight planets. 

1) First, watch the following video and read the information, which can be found below it, on BBC Bitesize: 

What is the solar system? – BBC Bitesize 

If this link doesn’t work, then please use the following website: 

www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zdrrd2p/articles/ztsqj6f 

2) On this same website, below the video, you will find an activity called ‘put the planets in order from the sun’. Complete this by dragging the planets into their correct order, from the sun. 

Finished? Click on ‘check’ to see if you were right! 

3) Now, test your knowledge of the solar system by completing the quiz – how many questions can you get right? 

4) A mnemonic is a tool that helps us remember certain facts or large amounts of information. They can come in the form of a song, rhyme, acronym, image, phrase or sentence. Mnemonics help us remember facts and are particularly useful when the order of things is important.  

Your task, is to create a new mnemonic, that will help others to remember the names of the planets of The Solar System and their order from the sun. (MVEMJSUN) 

Make sure that your mnemonic is memorable and has the 1st letter of the planet names (in the correct order) for the start of each word that creates the mnemonic: 

 e.g. Many Vile Earthlings Munch Jam Sandwiches Under Newspaper 

It will be great to hear what you come up with!
