Poster Competition A4 or A3 size

As part of Science Week (9th-13th March) we would like you to get creative and design a poster all about ‘Our Diverse Planet’. You may use materials such as pens, pencils, paint, crayons, pipe cleaners, felt, thread, wool, foil, string, beads, stamps or pom poms. However, try to avoid using straws or glitter as these materials can harm the creatures and ecosystem of our planet. 

Certificates will be awarded in assembly for the best 3 entries from each class. GOOD LUCK!

Year 5 

Science Poster Competition – 06.03.19 due in 10.03.19

 

This week for homework we would like you to produce a scientific poster around the theme of ‘Our diverse planet.’ Your posters will be entered into a nationwide competition. 

 

Your poster must be 2D (flat) on either A4 or A3 paper. You can use pop up pictures, pull out tabs or materials such as paint, drawing pencils, crayons and paper to create your poster.

 

When you research your poster investigate and imagine what ‘Our diverse planet’ looks like and everything that makes it special. Here are some topic ideas to get you started:

  • Biodiversity – from the biodiversity of your own garden to the bottom of the ocean, research all the amazing creatures and organisms that live on our planet. 
  • Diversity of science in the world we live in – Think about all of the ways you use science in your everyday life. Is there science in baking and cooking? Film or taking pictures? Operating planes and cars? Remember science is everywhere, you just have to look for it. 
  • How is our planet unique? – What makes our planet different from other planets in our solar systems?
  • Diversity of life on our planet – Molecules, where people live, people and their interests and tastes. 

 

You don’t have to use these ideas, they are just to help you get started. 

 

Try to avoid using straws and glitter – these plastics can damage our planet and harm the diverse creatures and ecosystems that live there. Please ensure your poster is back to school by Tuesday 10th March
