Science task one: Open the document below, and sort the evidence cards into two groups - one that supports the idea that the Earth is flat, and the other that supports the idea that the Earth is spherical.

Music

Today you are going to create a piece of artwork based on a song. The piece of music that you are going to listen to is by a composer called Hans Zimmer. You probably already know some of his music - he wrote scores for films such as 'Madagascar', 'The Lion King' and 'Kung Fu Panda'. 

1. Listen to the song, called 'Earth', at the following link: http://teach.files.bbci.co.uk/tenpieces/Zimmer1.mp3

2. Next, get a piece of paper and draw a big circle in the middle of your page. This is the Earth.

3. Listen to the song again. Draw what you think the music is describing on the Earth (e.g. people, vehicles, buildings, cities, etc) and around the Earth (e.g. space, stars, other planets). You might want to add some colour!

 

If you are interested in learning more about Hans Zimmer, you can following this link for more information: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/ten-pieces/classical-music-ks2-hans-zimmer-earth/zvg4vk7
