For those of you that have not had a chance yet please do watch video message that we have put together for all of the children https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ob8QXgsdhPs&feature=share&fbclid=IwAR0z4pjptBbsvjYNVZN_XHHflzpL-xCS-bGzY3eizVgPdg4bfKBy6jzAxx8

I can't wait to see the budding TV presenters!

History - Space Travel 

Last term we spent a few lessons looking back at Neil Armstrong. In this session we will be recapping the facts and learning about a new space mission that is in
the news at the moment.

1. Start by asking the following questions; Who was Neil Armstrong? Where did he land? When did he take this journey? What was his shuttle or space module called? They do not need to write any of this part down.


2. Complete the Oak Foundation lesson on Neil Armstrong https://www.thenational.academy/year-1/foundation/who-was-neil-armstrong-year-1-wk6-1#slide-3

3. Relate this learning to the first commercial space mission that took off
just a few days ago see https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/52526849
I look forward to seeing your Neil Armstrong timelines. Good Luck!

Science - The Weather

Can they remember the weather symbols that we learning last term? Can they draw and label them for; sunny, sunny intervals, snowy, rainy, thunder and lightning, cloudy.

Watch the BBC bitesize videos https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z849q6f/articles/z7dkhbk and also https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z9g87ty

Can they remember the names of the weather instruments?

Can they watch or read a weather report on the tv or in a newspaper.

Ask questions about where is it hottest/coolest? What is the temperature where we live? What is the weather like in London?

There is also a lesson associated with this session on Oak Academy if you have time https://www.thenational.academy/year-1/foundation/how-can-we-record-wind-direction-year-1-wk6-3

They must record the weather in Malton over the course of the week with words and symbols.
