Friday 21st May
Happy Friday everyone! We hope you are all looking forward to your half term break away from the home learning challenges!
Look out on the Messages from Mrs Ward and Mrs Whiston stars later this afternoon for a little video message from each of us. We are missing you lots.
Here's a flashback 4 to start today:
Thursday 21st May 2020
The girls huddled together and peered cautiously out of their bedroom window. They had been awoken, just moments earlier, by a strange light that burst through their curtains, filling the room with a silvery hue.
As one, they had tip-toed towards the source of the distraction, carefully dragging chairs across the room with them so that they could take a peek together.
They stared in awe and wonder at the sight that met their eyes. Something magical was happening...

For thousands of years, different civilisations have sought to understand the world around them, creating stories that explained anything they did not understand.
These stories are known as myths.
The documents below are some examples of myths which have been written to try to explain things such as the formation of star constellations, phases of the moon, the creation of the Earth, the Sun and the Moon etc.

Design an Eggnaut
One thing that it is important to consider when embarking on any form of space travel, is how you are going to get safely back to earth. Incorporated within any space vehicle there needs to be an escape pod of some description that will allow the astronauts to exit their space transporter and descend safely back to earth.
Your challenge today is to design, make and test an Eggnaut.
Your Eggnaut will need to be dropped from a height and provide protection for your astronaut egg. You may use any materials you can find in your home and create any type of structure that you think will protect your egg from destruction.
(No cheating… your egg cannot be boiled to make it stronger!)
