Czsec Year 5!
Just a reminder to check out the assemblies and music blogs. Mercedes and Amanda have recently updated them. Also check out Emily's ELSA blog's both here and on Purple Mash. On Purple Mash, Emily is always posting fun stuff to take part in, have a read through and join a few of her challenges. Last of all, make sure you are reading the school newsletters regularly. Many things are changing all the time and it is important that you and your family know all the latest news.

Our Learning Today
Lo: to infer a characters thoughts and feelings
I would like you to watch this clip and think about the sound. What do you hear?
Watch the clip again. Really focus on the background sound. Think about these questions.
What sounds do you hear?
Where is it coming from?
Are they real sounds or imaginary?
What is Baboon thinking about and why?
Today I would like you to write a thought bubble. I want you to do this in first person as Baboon. Write about how you are feeling and what you are thinking about. Here is my example:
I tried to think about what the sounds were and why baboon would hear them. I showed that the sounds made me upset and that they came from memories. I felt frustrated that my brain kept reminding me of my past.
Ok your turn. Draw a thought bubble and small image of Baboon. Write in first person and show the reader what those sounds are making you feel and what is going on in your head.
Lo: to to reflect a shape using coordinates
67,452,577 + 23,874,931
23,577,853 - 10,543,962
235 x 719
1724 ÷ 12
So yesterday we used reflection to move shapes across a mirror line. Today we are going to use our coordinate knowledge. Let's have a look at this example.
Am I correct? Next we have to reflect the shape. So each point has to be moved equally across the mirror line. Count the squares and make sure it is equal on the other side.
Here I have reflected the green shape across the mirror line and now we have to work out the coordinates of the reflected shape.
The coordinates of the new shape are:
Let's try this last one together.
Here are three questions. I have placed a shape on one side of a mirror line. I have not reflected it. I want you to work out the reflection by counting the squares and in your book I want you to write the name of the shape and the coordinates for the reflected shape.
Lo: to describe the movement of the planets
Today we are going to focus on the movement of the planets in our solar system. These are some very important questions I want you to think about. We will try to answer them by the end of our lesson.
How do planets move and why?
What force causes their movements?
How long does it take the Earth to move around the sun?
Do you know how long a year is on the other planets?
Have a read through my slides to discover the answers.
So the further away from the Sun, the longer a year lasts on that planet. Have a look at this poster it explains some pretty amazing facts.
Above the planet it shows how many days it takes for it to orbit the sun (a year on that planet). Below the planet it shows how long a day lasts. For each planet to spin around once is called a day. On Earth a day is just 24 hours. We spin quite fast. But on Mercury a day lasts the same as 176 Earth days. That is a massive 4,224 hours. That means it spins very very very slowly. It also means that a year on Mercury is shorter than a day?! It only takes Mercury 88 days to go around the sun because it is so close but a day is nearly double that.
Have a look at the facts above. In your books can you answer the questions at the start of the lesson and for each planet write some important facts about their orbits.
Have a great day. Theo :)
