LO 1.3.4

Read the excerpt about the position of the planets. After a second reading, allow the children to draw the sun in the centre. Read the position of each planet in relation to the sun and each other. Write the names on the board so that the children can write them in on the diagram

The planets

Pluto is the coldest planet and furthest from the sun. Earth is the third planet from the sun. It has air and water and can support life. The hottest planet is Mercury. Venus lies between Mercury and Earth. We can see it from Earth just after sunset. It is usually the first and brightest star that we can see. It is also called the Evening Star. Neptune lies just before Pluto. It has two moons. If you travelled towards the sun from Earth, you would pass one planet before coming to the largest planet, Jupiter. Mars has a red colour. It comes after Earth. Saturn has five rings around it. It is found between Jupiter and Uranus. Saturn is nearly as big as Jupiter. Uranus comes after Saturn but before Neptune. It seems to be spinning on its side. It is mostly made of liquid and gases like Jupiter and Saturn.

LO 1.1 LO 1.2
  • Read the following nursery rhyme. Nursery rhymes are usually very old and have been passed down by mothers to their children. Sometimes they are meant as a lullaby to put babies to sleep. Sometimes they are short poems, which play around with words. Then they do not always make sense. The important part is the rhyming.

The man in the moon

The man in the moon came tumbling down

To ask the way to Norwich

He went by the south and burnt his mouth

By eating cold plum porridge.

(Pronounce Norwich so as to rhyme with porridge)

  • Write out a nursery rhyme, which you enjoy. You can also try to make up your own. Illustrate your rhyme and read it to the class. Remember to read it with expression!

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
