Term Four - Scream Machine
Roll up, roll up! You’re going on a day trip to a theme park to soak up the unique sights, smells and sounds of the fair. Learn about the science behind roller coasters and write poems that are shaped as a loop the loop. Design a theme park and show your ideas on a digital map. Testing, testing! Time for some mini investigations. Cam mechanisms, pendulums, pulleys and prototypes. Let’s go behind the scenes to see forces at work. Good news! The engineers at ‘Scream Towers’ love your work and want you to build a death-defying new drop ride for a theme park. Make a working model and test it out with uncooked eggs. Cracking stuff! Okay, ready to ride? Don’t forget to scream if you want to go faster!
Term Three - Alchemy Island
It’s time to suspend your disbelief and open your mind. We’re going on a magical journey to Alchemy Island! Can you find the gold hidden deep within the island’s mysterious landscape? The only way is to study the map, unravel the riddle and begin your adventure. On the way, you must do all you can to learn about gold and master the ancient art of alchemy. Be creative and try to impress the island’s team of ace alchemists! Will they praise your scientific expertise? You’ve got your map, coordinates and everything else you need to make your way across Alchemy Island. Don’t forget to pack your imagination! Got your suitcase ready? Then let the journey begin...
Term Two - Hola Mexico!
Welcome to Mexico! Get ready to explore this unique country, from its towering temples and stunning geography to its pulsing rhythms and fun-packed festivals. Tummy rumbling? Concoct a traditional fruit cocktail or delicious Mexican meal. What’s on your shopping list? Go steady with the spices! Discover the mysterious world of the ancient Maya civilisation. Make their chocolate, learn their poetry, play their ball game and follow all their curious rituals. Just try to keep your head! Feel like celebrating? Design a flute, grab a drum, join a tribe and make some noise! Have you got what it takes to be chief? Let’s find out…
Term One - Stargazers
Journey through space, the final frontier...
Navigate beyond the Sun: the magnificent, blazing star at the centre of our Solar System!
Investigate the eight planets - Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Take a look at the Moon, a celestial body that orbits the Earth.
Programme a 'rover' to traverse a lunar landscape and work scientifically to investigate gravity, and what happens when there is none! Compare the time of day at different places on the Earth and use GPS satellite navigation systems to track hidden treasure! Get in a spin making simple models of the Solar System and listen to the haunting sounds of spaced themed songs.
Then it's three, two, one... BLAST OFF! Build and launch a rocket for an important test mission.
Exploring space is probably the greatest adventure that humankind has ever undertaken. Are we alone or are there other life forms out there?
Homework: Pupils are expected to complete their set MyMaths homework and read for at least 30 mins every evening. Please complete and sign reading records each night. Pupils homework projects will be displayed as part of the express section at the end of the unit of work. Pupils can choose whether to present their homework as written work, ICT or something creative. If pupils decide to choose something creative such as a painting then they should choose either written work or I.C.T. for their next homework project so that they are using different skills throughout the year.
