Starting next week, we will be planning a "Journey to Space" story about a character who will be making their way to the Trappist-1 System. In a few weeks, your character will write Journal entries about their visit to Space, and then will write some poetry about what they have seen.

 

Today's Task:

2. Read the non-chronological report about Trappist-1 below. There is also a longer document with more information - challenge yourself to read the longer document.

3. Use the information from the video and the non-chronological report to create a mind map of information about what it would be like to visit on the Trappist One planets. What would you see? How would this be different to Earth / similar? What might you hear? How might it feel on a planet in the Trappist-1 system?

4. Can you include Key Scientific Vocabulary also - including: - Planet - Star - Habitable - Telescope - Orbit - Rotate - Solar system

5. Watch the end of the video for more clues as to what life is like on Trappist-1!
 

Reading

Remember to read with an adult for 30 minutes every day. Below are some questions your adults can ask you about the books you read. There is also a link to the Reading section of the website - "Must Read Books".

 

When you finish a book, you could review it! You can present your book review in any way you wish. You could write your review on paper, or present your book review as a video, like the examples we watched in class! The links to those reviews are below.

Visit the Library section of the website by clicking the link below...

Spelling Tasks

 

On the timetable there are 5 spelling sessions. You could use two sessions for Creative Spellings, one for Spellzone or other spelling Games, one for Look-Cover-Write-Check learning, and one for your Spelling Test.

 

SPELLZONE INFORMATION - This is a link for the Free games. Children are not expected to sign up to an account, and do not have an account already set up by school.

 

STATUTORY SPELLING LISTS - These are the lists we choose from for our weekly spellings. The spelling list for this week and for next is published separately below, featuring chosen spellings from the statutory lists. The statutory lists do not need to be printed off.

 

WEEKLY SPELLINGS - Choose 10 spellings to practise and test yourself on this week from either the Year 3 and 4 OR Year 5 and 6 Spelling List.

 

Creative Spellings - why not:

  • make a spelling pyramid
  • create spelling scribble
  • scramble your spellings
  • use the internet to build a crossword or word search (use dictionaries to help with definitions and meanings)
