This week's theme is 'Space' and for this we have a few activities we would like you to have a go at.
The first is to learn all about the life of a famous astronaut called Neil Armstrong and create a timeline of important parts of his life. The second is to imagine that you are an astronaut and to think about the sorts of skills and characteristics you might need be good for the job. We then want you to apply for the role of an astronaut and think about who else you would have on your team. Finally, you need to create a rocket to get you into space. Can you create your own space rocket and write some instructions for someone else to follow?
Thank you to everyone who has sent in pictures of work or replied to emails, we are glad that you are finding the work useful. If you haven't been in touch, please drop us a quick e-mail to say hello and we look forward to hearing from some more of you soon!
With an adult, watch the weblink and have a go at making your own rocket. Once your rocket is complete, talk about how you made it using sequencing words such as: first, next, then, finally, verbs (doing words) such as: cut, stick, glue, tape, put etc and adverbs (describes an action) like: carefully, slowly, gently, quickly etc. Remember to retell the instructions in the correct order!
Next write down your instructions in full sentences for someone else to follow. Make sure they are in the correct order using the words discussed previously. Include a ‘what you need’ section at the top of the page and make sure you number each instruction. You could add diagrams or even video yourself making the rocket to go with your instructions too! Check for capital letters and full stops. Read through the instructions to check that they make sense before giving them to someone to follow.
