Bonjour Year 5!
Please make sure you watch or read Barbara's latest newsletter and check through the other blogs (assembly, music, Spanish and ELSA), if you haven't.
Don't forget to send in your letters to Salma and Emily and any work you are really proud of this week to me at:
Our Learning Today
Lo: to write an alternative narrative
Today I would like you to write the second section of your story. This section is all about your character's present. You need to include:
Lo: to recognise and use square numbers
Let's start off with some CLIC questions:
937,582 - 863,762
5482 x 263
4862 ÷ 47
Today we are going to do some calculations using square numbers. Here is my first example:
2² + 3² = ?
Ok so first of all we have to work out the two square numbers.
2² = 4 because I know that 2 x 2 = 4
3² = 9 because I know that 3 x 3 = 9
4 + 9 = 13
So 2² + 3² = 13
Let's try a subtraction:
7² - 4² = ?
First work out the square numbers.
7² = 49 because I know that 7 x 7 = 49
4² = 16 because I know that 4 x 4 = 16
49 - 16 = 33
So 7² - 4² = 33
Your turn now. Here are some square number calculations. Read them carefully, they are not all square numbers.
Lo: to write a fact sheet about the first Moon landing
For our final history lesson of the year we are going to explore the moon landing. This is one of the biggest achievements in human history. We know that during the 1950s and 1960s, Russia and the USA were in a space race. The Russians made great progress and achieved many of the first goals but in 1969 the most important goal was reached by the USA.
The American missions to the Moon were called the Apollo missions. Apollo 11 was the first mission that landed humans successfully on the surface. Apollo 11 took 3 days to fly to the Moon.
On July 20, 1969, this mission successfully landed on the moon. Neil Armstrong was the first man to walk on the moon. He was then joined by “Buzz” Aldrin, and the two astronauts spent 21 hours on the moon's surface. But only about 3 hours walking on the moon, setting up experiments, taking pictures and collecting a lot of moon rock to bring back to Earth. After their historic walk on the Moon, they travelled back to Earth with Michael Collins who had been waiting on board to get them back safely.
There is no air, rain or wind on the moon. This means that their footprints, the flag and the things they left on the moon will stay there without moving. They will be in the same place as they left them all those years ago.

I would like you to create a fact sheet all about the moon landing. It will need to include detailed pictures and lot's of information about the event. The people involved and some key facts. Make it creative and colourful. Send me your designs when you are finished.
Have a great day! Theo :)
