As we come to the end of our Spinning in Space inquiry, we need to think about what we have learned about living on our amazing planet – Planet Earth!
What makes it the only known planet in our solar system with life on it? What are the special conditions on Earth that allow life to flourish?
What are the problems facing our planet and its environment?
What can each one of us do to protect our planet into the future?
To gather our thoughts, we will be writing down all our ideas in a PMI chart (Plus, Minus and Interesting or Ideas). Then we can work out which problem to focus on to do some research before working out how we can help.
Here are some websites you can use for your research:
I was really impressed with the quality of your work when groups presented this week. I could see what you had learned about different countries’ celebrations and the effort you had gone to in creating a poster to display your learning! Best of all was the TEAMWORK that we saw! Great job everybody! 🙂
Just to show you how great your posters looked, here are your team presentation photos. Enjoy! Mrs Veary
CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL YOU WONDERFUL AND TALENTED STUDENTS IN ROOM 6:)
You have done a fantastic job learning to put your finding out information onto your own webpages in the wiki. It looks great! We will be showing it on Friday and we might show it to the Year 7s who are doing a Middle Ages Inquiry.
This Friday is our CLASSROOM CELEBRATION and we hope that lots of parents will be able to come back in time with us to the Middle Ages and the time of Fairytales….. We begin at 2.30 p.m. and remember to press on the time portal on the door of Room 6 and say the word ‘fairytales’… !
I’d love to hear your ideas about what you are going to wear or come as on Friday. Looking forward to lots of comments here.
We will be finishing our inquiry FAIRYTALES AND THE MIDDLE AGES over the next four weeks. Inquiry tasks are to continue with your INQUIRY CARDS and try to get through all the levels of thinking. The big challenge is to complete our BIG QUESTION: Compare the lives/lifestyle of Nobles and Peasants in the Middle Ages on our brand new wiki – GO KIDS, YOU ARE AMAZING STUDENTS!
