Saturn Class

 

 

Welcome to Saturn Class.  This year our classes have been named after the planets in our Solar System. 

 

We began the year by writing about our class planet.  Did you know that NASA sent a spaceship - CASSINI - to orbit Saturn about 20 years ago.  It sent back many pictures and lots of information about the Solar System.  Unfortunately, it ran out of fuel and was destroyed on 15th September 2017.   You can learn more about it here Cassini

 

Here is a sample of some of our writing.

Our IPC unit for Autumn 1 is Footprints from the Past.

 

We have become Paleontologists to find out how nature has left us footprints about the past.

Our learning goals are:

To know about the main events, dates and characteristics of past societies.

To give some reasons for particular events and changes.

To gather information from simple sources.

To use secondary sources to obtain geographical information.

To use art as a means of self expression.

 

So far we have learnt about fossils and how they are created and found out that there are fossils of many different animals, not just dinosaurs.  

In Art we made clay fossils.
