This week we will write our second astronaut journal entry. This time we have arrived on one of the Trappist 1 planets and you will be writing about an exciting mission you took part in to explore the planet.

Monday- Choose one of the images of the planet landscapes. Then think of a noun that you can see Eg mountains, then think of an adjective to go with this Eg Jagged mountains, then add a verb eg stood and then an adverb eg proudly and then a prepostional phrase eg over the land. Put them together to make a sentence. Eg The jagged mountains stood proudly over the land.

Tuesday- Use the planning frame to plan your journal entry of the mission.

Wednesday- Begin to write your journal entry, explaining what happened on your mission. Remember to include the sentences you made on Monday. Describe what you saw, what happened, your feelings and reactions.

Thursday- Finish off your writing and then check and edit and improve your work. Think about ly, eg and ing openers. Are you happy with your wow words? Can you improve them?
