This week we would like you to learn about Astronauts and what it takes to become a space explorer like Time Peake. We would like you to find information about Tim Peake and to create an astronaut training programme (one that you can try yourselves). Below are some useful video clips and websites to get you started and I am sure that you can find loads more websites to help and inspire you!

 

Do you have what it takes to become an astronaut?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b092ng4q/astronauts-do-you-have-what-it-takes-series-1-episode-1  recommend that you watch just the start of this video to get an idea of what it takes to become an astronaut. If you want to watch the first 30 minutes this will show you some tasks (I would avoid watching more than 40 minutes to avoid seeing someone take blood- gross!) There are 6 episodes of this showing some of the tests that NASA or ESA might give- if you want to have a quick look. 

 

Who is Time Peake?

This week’s tasks: Create a presentation, fact file or poster about Time Peake. Watch some videos about astronaut training and create your own astronaut training programme- this can involve tests, challenges, puzzles or anything you think of (If you can set up a course at home and do it- amazing).

(I know it’s obviously not as good as The Weekend…..but.... try it!)

 

Try to be creative with how you present your ideas and what you find out. If you want to do posters, Powerpoint, fact files, collages, pictures, a video or anything else- go for it!

Do use the email address: year5prospect@outlook.com to send us any photos / work you do and we will showcase some examples on Friday 1st May.

 

Look at some of the things that you guys have been doing at home!

Welcome to the Summer Term!

 

We know that things feel a little strange at the moment but we're so proud of you for staying safe and positive during this time. 

 

We love hearing from you and seeing what you've been doing. Keep emailing photos to year5prospect@outlook.com and we will showcase as many as we can - updating them each Friday!

 

This week we're launching "Learning by Questions" which is a great app for practicing our Maths and English. All you need is the internet and a device like a phone, tablet or laptop (see the letter on the website for more details). 

 

Each day we will be texting you a code which takes you to 3 activities chosen by us: Maths, Reading and Grammar  Get as far as you can. The app gives you feedback and handy hints, if you don't get it right first time. You may not reach the end but 20 minutes on each will give your brain a really good workout!

 

Next week we will be launching our new topic: Space (very exciting!) and don't forget the Superhero competition gets judged this Friday!

 

Good Luck!
