To finish my description, I added an interesting ending that included a question. You will need to add an ending to yours, too.

 

The Moon is a natural satellite that was created 4.5 billion years ago. It orbits the Earth and also rotates every 27 days. The moon is grey and white. You are not able to hear any sound on the moon because there is no air. Also, if you dropped two objects, like a heavy hammer and a light feather, they would land at the same time. As there is no air, there is no resistance. Everything and everybody would feel lighter on the Moon than they do on Earth. A person who weighs 60kg on Earth would only weigh 10 kilograms on the Moon because the Earth is 6 times bigger than the Moon. This makes the astronauts look like they are bouncing across the Earth’s surface. They wear protective suits and carry oxygen tanks so that they can breathe. The astronauts travelled across the Moon in a space buggy which looks like great fun and they left a US flag there. It is possible to see where the visitors to the moon have been because they leave footprints and tyre tracks in the dust. The craters in the moon have been there for millions of years. Some were caused by meteors crashing into the Moon’s surface. In the middle of some of the craters there are huge mountains. The Moon is certainly a very interesting place. Would you like to visit?

 

Check your full description of the Moon. Does it all link together? Have you added an ending? Did you include a question and use a question mark?

 

If you can, please take a photograph of your full description or even type it up so that you can send it to me by email. I would absolutely love to see your work.

 

I'm sure you are ready for some lunch now!

 

Guided Reading:

Last week you learnt about Tim Peake who was the most recent British astronaut to visit Space but do you know who the first British astronaut was? Today's Reading Comprehension task will tell you all about...her.

 

There are 3 different levels: easy, middle and tricky. The answers are all included, too. You can choose one or try two or three different levels.

 

 

Who was the first Briton in space?

 

In May 1991, Helen Sharman became the first Briton in space. The Soyuz TM-12 mission, which included Soviet cosmonauts Anatoly Artsebarsky and Sergei Krikale...

Tomorrow, we'll watch a video that has just been made this week. In the video, Helen Sharman talks about her experiences in Space including how it was similar to being isolated at home like we are now. You'll have some questions to answer and some deep thinking to do on Friday, too.

 

Topic:

Yesterday you named a range of different materials. I wonder how many different materials you found around your house...

 

Recap objects and the materials they are made from by reading through this PowerPoint:

 

Today we are going to look at the properties of materials. We can use a range of words to describe what materials are like. Have a look through this PowerPoint and discuss:

 

 

Here are some more examples:

 

 

 

 

Today your task is to collect a range of objects from around your house. Touch each object to see what it feels like. How many different words can you use to describe the object? Look back to remind yourself of the words you could use. Can you think of your own describing words? Fill in the table below.

 

Here are some photographs from yesterday.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yesterday some of you may of chose the activity to group objects by the material they were made out of. Could you group the objects you have used today by their properties?

You can take photographs but remember the labels will be the properties: flexible, smooth, transparent etc.

 

Story Time:

I have chosen a story for you to listen to. I hope you enjoy it.

I hope you all have a good day and see you all tomorrow.

 

With Lots of Love
