## Spelling List

> SCIENCE

Our topic this term is Time Travelers. We have explored canals, rivers, boats, trains, steam engines and now we are going to push on....and travel further....into SPACE!

Before we can travel into space we must learn a little bit about what Space is....and where our planet Earth fits into it.
Watch the film below.

At the centre of our bit of space - the Solar System - is the Sun.

Our Solar System also contains planets - one of which is our Earth.

Do you know the names of the planets in our Solar System and the order in which they go from the Sun outwards?

Watch the films below to help you.... I wonder which one you will like the best?

One way to remember the order of the planets is to use a mnemonic - this is clever little sentence that helps us remember because it uses the first letter of each word as a clue:

A famous one for remembering the order of the planets is:

My Very Easy Method Just Speeds Up Naming Planets

Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Pluto (dwarf planet)

Click below to hear Mr Smyton say the mnemonic.

## Click to hear Mr Smyton talk about the mnemonic

Can you create a new mnemonic to help remember the order of the planets?

In your Exercise book at the English end on a new page put the title Planets.

I would like you to create and write a new mnemonic.

E.g My Vigorous Energetic Mum Jumped Suddenly Under Nan's Piano

Remember to make sure the words' first letters match the order of the planets: MVEMJSUNP

Maybe you could draw and colour pictures of the planets around it?

## Mr Smyton makes up a mnemonic...

> RE - EASTER
We are heading towards the Easter holidays. Easter is a special time for people who are Christians.
Watch the film below about Easter.

There are lots of traditions associated with Easter; often celebrating new life: Easter Eggs, The Easter Bunny and special foods.

One tradition which became very popular during Victorian times was the making and wearing of Easter Bonnets (hats) at an Easter parade. Click below to see some incredible Easter bonnets!

Can you design, make and model an Easter bonnet?

You could use a cap, woolly hat or other hat as a start and then add decoration to it or you could build it all using recycled things in your house.

You can choose any theme you wish.

Are you going for height, humour, colour, gorgeousness or just cool?

You may need some time to make this and it may be something you do over a few days. I would love to see a picture when it's finished
