MOORISH MYSTERIES
 
Term 5:
This term we will explore the Moors and the influence they had on Europe for over 700 years.

  

Week 1: We looked at a range of historical sources to see how the past is constructed, listening to Moorish music, viewing Moorish buildings and art.  In English we drafted a poem about visiting an Arabic marketplace. In pairs we asked each other questions in Spanish and in computing we learnt about the importance of robotics and programming in our world. We programmed the Blockly bird, Code playground and Ozoblockly. In DT we started to design our own product and in science we explored more about genetics, evolution and inheritance. We found out  how different living things are reproduced.

Week 2: In Spanish we learnt how to say which places we liked visiting on holiday and translated the Easter story from Spanish to English. We explored the market in Marrakech and finished our poem about the Arabic marketplace. We used minicubes to measure volume. We did a range of athletics event for PE. In computing we programmed a self-driving car and tried to get a lunar module to land directed a robot spaceship and the micro:bit. In science we explored Darwin's theory of Natural selection, watch the video here.  In DT we started to make the product which we designed.
     

Week 3: In computing this week we created shapes and repeating patterns in Logo, similar to the Moorish designs found in southern Spain. We continued to explore inheritance and environment in science and played the dog breeding game.
