As many of my regular readers would know my girls moved schools this term. It seems primary schools have a theme each term. (I am little clueless on the primary curriculum ) so when they started at their new school and we were told the theme was space - I thought oh no we've done that - does this mean they will miss out on something else??and I am dreading the we have to make a solar system assignment which I just threw out in the holidays LOL. Anyhow it is what it is !
Tonight Tals came home on a mission to find some fun videos to share on fun friday - with a space theme. So we had a google for a very long time.
I learnt stuff - It was cool - this video is particularly neat - starts out a little slow but really - stay with it - I was amazed - and totally clueless
and so we were just going to show that but then
we found a whole series called Space School Musical
Hannah is trying to finish her science project - a model of the solar system. But there’s a problem: it’s due tomorrow, she’s not finished yet, and it’s past her bedtime. How will she get it done? With a little help from her friends – the most talented troupe in the Milky Way!Join Hannah on a trip through the solar system in this ultra-cool edu-tainment “hip-hopera” that is out of this world! Move and groove along with the planets, moons, meteors, comets, asteroids and even some rockin’ scientists as they sing, dance and serve up the freshest facts in the galaxy. Space is definitely one cool place.
It covers different aspects of space set to music -trendy songs and fun costumes - the words for each song comes up on screen and there are downloads of the lyrics available on the website too.
We watched each section and Talia decided which ones she wanted downloaded. We left out a comedy one which wasn't very funny and just a bit silly. Also the teacher speaking about how the musical came together -she didn’t think was very interesting ( I did LOL ) .
This is one of our favourite ones - so fun! So we burnt them all to CD and Tals is hoping her idea gets chosen to show. It wasn't an assignment just something to share.
Happy night :)
