LO: To learn the names of the phases of the Moon

  1. Look back at the last piece of work you did on the Moon.  Some of you were out at an event and didn't do it.  We labelled Moon phases and made a spinner.
  2. This work needs sorting out if you have done it. A couple of the books have already been done - please look at your book and identify yourself if it has been done in your book.  Use this to show the class what it should look like.
  3. If you were out at the event, don't worry - you will find out about the Moon now.
  4. Watch the video and then look at the PowerPoint.

Phases of the Moon

Labelling activity notes....

Look at the copied versions of the resource.

Use the top diagram (with clues) to label the phases.

Mark it together.

Then, complete the bottom diagram neatly, cut it out and glue it in books.

Don't forget dates and Los.


Finishing off any art work from this year


Inner self - have you added the black lines and any details?

Did you start a Frida Kahlo portrait?  Can you finish this off?

Any other pieces unfinished?  


Surrealism - did you finish your automatism?  Can you make one on nice paper for display?  What would you call it?

Science - Wednesday

LO: To show understanding of how we see light.


Do this on sheets, don't glue in books as we have other bits to glue in first.

Use PPT to guide lesson and help you complete the activities.

1 month long science homework

  1. When it gets dark each day, try to look up at the Moon.
  2. Look at the shape you can see and decide which 'Moon Phase' the Moon is in.
  3. Colour the Moon to show how much you can see. You can use yellow to show the Moon if you find it easier than colouring the parts you CAN'T see.
  4. Bring it in each Tuesday for a progress check.
