Social Justice

Our Global Theme this half term has been Social Justice. Through our English, Mathematics, Science and the wider curriculum we have:

  • gained knowledge
  • learned vocabulary
  • developed skills

 

Science

Day and Night

(explanation by Amelia E)

This half-term in Science, we have been focussing on space and the planets. We've looked into how the Earth orbits the Sun and rotates. Did you know that, in the Northern and Southern areas, at certain times of the year, it is dark daily. This lesson, we have drawn and labelled an accurate scientific diagram of the Earth showing how day and night are controlled by the Earth's rotation and Sun's light.

 

 

Computing

Website Layout

This half term our final outcome is to produce websites in pairs using Google Sites. We have begun by exploring sitemaps and website layouts. 

  Site map ( or Sitemap )  -  A site map is the layout or organisational structure of the pages in a website.

Sitemaps are important to consider as they are the first key step in making sure a website is clear and user friendly.

 

History

Helen Sharman

(explanation by Holly H)

This half term we have been looking at the theme of Social Justice and Equality. We have be focusing on space and the planets to do this. When you think of space you instantly think of Neil Armstrong, but has anyone heard of Katherine Johnson? Most people haven’t. This is partly because she was a woman. Without Katherine Johnson, Neil Armstrong would not have had the correct calculations to land on the moon. Our History is all about the British contribution to space exploration. Most recently, we researched Helen Sharman, who was the first British person in space and the first European woman in space. Here is a collection of our work.
