Year 5 Earth and Space Bundle This year 5 science teaching bundle contains the following 5 PowerPoint presentations with accompanying worksheets: Models of the Solar System The Solar System Night and Day Planets on the Move The Moon Each of these science teaching resources has been designed to help deliver lessons covering the Year 5 science curriculum objectives as outlined in the year 5 science programme of study (Earth and space). For a full description and preview of each resource please click on the images below. This bundle gives you a saving of 42% when compared to buying each resource individually.
This clear, detailed and visually-appealing resource offers a complete reference point for Year 5 children, teachers and parents covering knowledge relating to ‘Sound’, as a part of their science learning. It contains comprehensive sections on: Overview; The Solar System; The Sun and the Moon; The Planets; Planets Facts; Key Vocabulary. The content is fully aligned with the NC expectations for Year 5 children relating to ‘Space’: -describe the movement of the Earth, and other planets, relative to the Sun in the solar system -describe the movement of the Moon relative to the Earth -describe the Sun, Earth and Moon as approximately spherical bodies -use the idea of the Earth’s rotation to explain day and night and the apparent movement of the sun across the sky. The resource is designed to be printed onto A3, and is provided as both a PDF and a Word version (so that you can edit if you want to). All images used are licensed for commercial use and are cited on a separate document (included).
This is a ‘True or False’ revision lesson for Y5 science Earth and Space. It is differentiated by outcome so students can work through as many as they can. Students highlight true statements green. highlight false statements in pink. They then have to correct the false statements, explaining how they know they’re not true or correcting the information. My students found this incredibly useful coming to the end of their Earth and Space topic. They were allowed to work in small mixed ability groups and it addressed a lot of misconceptions. Before allowing the children to ‘correct’ false statements, I suggest talking through whether the statements are true or false. Some of them are deliberately very challenging and the students need to look carefully at the wording of the statement. A tricky problem solving lesson that all the children enjoy and are actively engaged in.
A set of PowerPoints which cover Earth and Space. The engaging PowerPoints include stimulating starters, lesson objectives, key scientific skills, key vocabulary, literacy, numeracy, research lessons, opportunities for class discussions and plenaries.
Questions and solutions aimed at able KS3 or KS4 pupils that need to revise the basic ideas. There is an online version of the questions so that you can pull questions up on the whiteboard to talk the class through the solution and/or get them to mark their own. http://www.cyberphysics.co.uk/Q&A/KS3/space/Spacequestions.html

Ks3 (year 7/8) resource for introduction to space (2 lessons) - All resources made and produced by myself, and a lot of detail and time has been taken to produce. -Easy to see progress over two lessons from students. - No practical, though a wide range of VAK tasks throughout. Easy lesson good and engaging, space is always a fun lesson to teach, as class normally always engaged from start. This is the reason why it is spread over 2 lessons (never normally do this). - Lesson 4/5 out of 5. Included: - Option of two starters. - Lesson outline (Main components, but more of overview of lesson and explanation of set tasks and how to use resources, it has been broken down so easier to follow than a lesson plan). - Detailed PowerPoint with animations. Also contains all answers to worksheets. (66 pages). - All worksheets (Worksheet to be printed back to back with space left to glue into books). - Interactive notebook slide for size comparison task. - Three plenaries (9 question quiz, hidden images and splat) - Two worksheets of exam style questions with answers and sheet on PowerPoint so easier to run through with class. 5 videos (average length 2 minutes), these are all hyperlinked in PowerPoint by clicking on images and back up hyperlink in note section of PowerPoint. Cannot upload on TES, but all easily accessible. - Space song (outstanding song) called Outer space we are the planets and stars. - Planet Earth compared to other planets and stars - Solar system (Virtual Orrery) - How do we know how many galaxies there are in the Universe. - The smallest to biggest thing in the universe. Aspects of National curriculum lesson covers (In varying detail): - Gravity force, different on other planets and stars; gravity forces between Earth and Moon, and between Earth and Sun (More detailed in previous lesson). -Our Sun as a star, other stars in our galaxy, other galaxies. -The light year as a unit of astronomical distance. Please review if bought and check out my free resources, will upload rest of lessons out of 5. Previous lesson are, The seasons, Night and Day and The moon phase.
Earth From Space / Using Satellite Images in Geography A worksheet to support BBC documentary Earth Fro Space, episode 1. Used to help students learn about satellite images and how they are used around the world. Focuses on monitoring changing animal behaviour in different ecosystems and changing landscapes.

This is an Earth and Space y5 science topic revision lesson. It recaps all the most important pieces of information for the topic. Students in my class round this incredibly useful before sitting their end of topic assessment. I suggest printing it A3 and glueing into science books.
This lesson is an introduction to lunar and solar eclipses, and is part of a four-lesson series on Space Systems. This lesson supports MS-ESS1 (Earth's Place in the Universe of the NGSS). The handout and included answer key work together with videos and links found at http://www.howaboutscience.com/eclipses. Students may work independently if everyone has an internet connected device. If not, the videos can be projected and the handout filled out as a group. Once students complete the handout, discuss the answers and play the Kahout! (click the link on the home page to learn more about Kahouts!) The video materials chosen are based on length, clarity, quality and how closely they align with the national standards. The lesson could be added as an introduction or as further exploration and could be completed as one activity or broken into smaller segments. "How About Science?" materials can be incorporated into your existing unit in various ways depending on the ability level of your students and the availability of technology. Here are a few things to consider. If students are working individually it is helpful, but not required to have headphones or earbuds. If the sound is kept low even a large class of students can be successful without them. Also, because students find the directions very easy to follow, these are perfect for substitute teachers. And, because the videos are online, students with internet connections at home don't have to be at school to complete an assignment. My classes are typically action packed with labs and activities, but these video-based lessons require careful listening and focus. My classes are never quieter, which is kind of nice on occasion. Note! I would suggest doing a trial run before purchasing if you plan to have a large class of students working at individual computers. Internet connection speeds vary which may cause videos to load slowly. You might have everyone log on and try my free resource on TpT (or just go to a lesson and choose something) just to be sure you aren't going to have connection issues. If you do, then you can always project the videos and complete the handouts as a group. For more information about how to get the most out "How About Science?" click the Teacher's Guide in the menu bar on the website.
This booklet supports a series of lesson and is designed for Entry Level/SEND students to allow them to access the key elements of science. If used in a mixed ability class, these booklets allow students to keep pace with the rest of the class whilst personalising the challenge and support they require. The booklet is part of a series of booklets with a variety of tasks including matching keywords and definition, scaffolding, extended answers, research and a lot of practical work with matching results tables/graphs. Some of the diagrams have had to be removed for copyright.
Great plenary, starter or revision activity. A student is given a card and has to describe the word without using any of the three words given or the actual word. Students can then make their own versions too as great revision too.
