This is lesson 1 in a series of 6 high quality lessons that fully and expertly delivers all the points within BOTH the NEW KS3 Department for Education ‘Space Physics’ National Curriculum and the AQA KS3 specification / syllabus sections ‘3.7.2 Universe’ and ‘3.1.2 Gravity’. Updated and Improved 17th June 2019.
Ready to use, no preparation required ! Project and go !! The powerpoint will lead you through every step.
STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES - are given towards the bottom of this text.
Pupils will start the lessons by thinking and working in pairs in a race to unscramble some of the key words in today’s lesson. After revealing the title and lesson outcomes students self assess against their current understanding of this topic.
MAIN and MAIN and MAIN…
This lesson is ‘chunked’ into discrete sections to support learning and engender positive behaviour by keeping students interested and focused. All points of the specification are addressed. There are various student activities such as gap fill, matching, reviewing a solar system model, words unscramble, literacy activity, questions and answers, think/pair/share, quiz, sort into size order, mnemonic, self-assessment, peer assessment etc.
In the plenary activity pupils complete a quiz and then peer assess it to uncover how much they have learnt during the lesson. They then self assess themselves against the lesson outcomes. Students who need further support set themselves additional homework to enhance learning of today’s lesson.
These are provided just in case any group requires them.
All resources are included in this excellent lesson, there is nothing for you to do but deliver it.
OUTCOMES - STUDENTS LEARN TO:
* Understand the structure of the solar system and be able to draw it with the planets in the correct order. * Explain what keeps the planets in place ‘orbiting’ the sun.
* Understand what ‘stars’ and ‘galaxies’ and ‘light years’ are.
* Use new literacy words such as ‘orbit’ and ‘light year’.
* Comprehend the vast size of the Milky Way and the Universe.
Thank you for looking, your positive feedback would be very much appreciated :)

Happy teaching !
I created this plan and PPT for a job interview where I was asked to teach a year 5/6 class. I based the lesson on their two main topics which were Space and Poetry. I used the fantastic poem 'Six Ways to Look at the Moon' by Pie Corbett in this lesson - included. I also used another fab poem - included. Task was for the children to write their own version of Pie Corbett's poem. PPT easy to follow along while teaching. The 'Six-ways-to-look-at-ordering-a-poem' resource was used as an activity where I cut up the sentences and worked with a focus group to read, re-order the poem - this was great for discussion and for thinking about structure/ language in poem, etc.
Social story about personal space for children who are getting too close to others to talk to them.
The point of a social story is to use a patient and reassuring tone to teach children about social situations in a way that can be easily understood. Social stories can be useful for any child who is struggling to understand a situation or concept or needs help to understand a social skill or social cue, expectations, perspectives, common responses or is troubled about an upcoming event but social stories are particularly useful for children on the autistic spectrum for whom social cues can be challenging and who often suffer anxiety if they do not know what to expect from a situation.
These books should be used over and over to reinforce the point so I would suggest either putting the pages into a display book or laminating and binding them.

This presentation is about space, it will help student's understand space in a great depth! Great for children in secondary school as well as higher education. Very straight forward to use, and full of useful information.
This place is great for a school trip in order to study STEM based subjects through a space theme. Older children can study subjects such as physics, and younger children can dress up as astronauts! The promotional video available through the YouTube video gives you a good idea of what it's like and the brochure is a good download for info.
This Planet Fact File is the perfect activity for your children to learn all about the planets in our solar system by completing their own personal booklet. They are required to research key information about the planets in order to complete the booklet. This pack contains two sets, one set where they can draw the planets, and the other where an image is already on the information sheets.
You can use this activity in class, however lots of my class loved taking it home as a home learning project!
- Fact File Front Cover
- Differentiated Fact File Templates For: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.
