Voices from the Stars

For centuries, mankind has been listening to the stars, waiting for a sign that we are not the only planet in the Universe capable of supporting intelligent life. For centuries, the stars have remained silent.

This morning the stars spoke...

Now write a response to their communication. You will need to answer their questions and tell them everything you feel they need to know about the Earth and all the living things upon it.

VE Day Personal Project


Hello Year 5! Your learning learning challenge for the next few days, is all about VE Day, which we will be celebrating as a nation on Friday this week. (This is why the usual May Day bank holiday has moved from today to Friday, as it will mark the 75 year anniversary.) This week you have a four day week, and for the next 3 days, we would like you to complete a personal project on VE day. You can create a fact file poster, or a presentation, or recreate some of the recipes that were made for the street parties that took place to mark the occasion.(Remember, rationing was still in place then so many of the recipes were cleverly adapted to account for the limited amounts of certain foods such as eggs and butter!). You could even plan a lock-down celebration instead of a street party, that you and your family can enjoy together on Friday! Be as creative as you like - we cannot wait to see what you come up with! 


Here are a few links to get you started:

May the 4th be with you!!! - It's Star Wars day laugh

Today we are giving you a choice of tasks related to space to complete. You can do one task, two, or all of them if you want to! Choose from these four tasks to do: 

1. Make an acrostic poem for one of the planets

e.g. M




This could be a list of words beginning with each letter, a sentence for each line or even a rhyme.

2. Find out facts about the space missions and create a poster/PowerPoint/booklet to show your findings –

      - What was the first creature sent into space?

      -  Who was the first astronaut?

      -  Who was the first man on the moon?

What other interesting facts can you find?

3. Use scrap paper, foil, sweet wrappers and other junk around the house to create your own space collage.

4. Make a space mobile that you could hang in the classroom when we are back (hang it up at home for now). 

Have fun and be creative!


Ongoing challenge this week: The Sky at Night


Over the course of this week, we would like you all to keep a special type of observational diary:

Keep a sky at night journal for a whole week.  Write about everything you can see in the sky.  You could draw a picture of the moon every night.  Does it change over the course of the week?
