Year 5 IPC Entry Point - 'Mission to Mars'

On Wednesday 28th August 2019, the students of Year 5 had their ‘Entry Point’ for our first International Primary Curriculum (IPC) topic, ‘Mission to Mars’.

  • Y5 Entry Point 6
  • Y5 Entry Point 7
  • Y5 Entry Point 5
  • Y5 Entry Point 4
  • Y5 Entry Point 3
  • Y5 Entry Point 2
  • Y5 Entry Point 1

The purpose was to stimulate interest and fascination in space exploration and the latest considerations for astronaut training. Building Lego towers whilst wearing oven gloves (to replicate space suit gloves), consideration of how to deal with an alien encounter and challenging obstacle courses were just some of the activities. The swimming pool was used for various devious tasks, such as putting on and taking off a t-shirt in the water, diving through sunken hoops and even brushing your teeth underwater! We will use the following weeks to further develop an understanding of various missions and projects that humans have undertaken to visit other planets and systems, with a particular focus on Mars.
