This afternoon the Kestrels took the opportunity to experience life as planet Earth and the Moon.
We physically became these celestial bodies, in movement, to understand how they move through our solar system.
Enjoy the video of the class discovering how dizzy they would be as the Earth, having to spin on it’s own axis as well as traveling around the sun. We then moved onto the moon and discovered that the moon does not spin as it goes around the Earth; it always shows the us the same side.
The children in Year 5 have been working on persuading people to see their point of view. Part of this was to prepare and then act out some text maps they had produced. Have a look at photographs of their text mapping process.
You will have to keep your eyes open for the final piece of work, and see if the Year 5 children can persuade YOU!
