Tim Peake Homework 29th April 2016


Year 5,

We have been hard at work learning all about space in our topic this half term.

We hope you enjoyed our visit from our Space Ambassador Mr Porter on Monday morning. He told you a lot about Tim Peake and his mission (Principia) on board the International Space Station.

One of Tim’s main aims while he is on board the ISS is to interest and inspire as many children about space and science as possible. So, for your homework, we would like you to research and blog about any other interesting or fascinating facts about either Tim Peake or his time on board the ISS.

You could research what it is like for Tim Peake in space, what sorts of things he has been doing during his visit or anything else about the mission you think your class would be interested to read about.

Please also comment on each others’ posts if you have found out something interesting by reading all the posts!

Happy Bank Holiday!

Scratch Games Evaluations

For your homework over half term, we would like you blog an evaluation of the scratch game you made this half term. It needs to be at least 200 words.

Use the thinking hats to help you organise your thoughts:

Blue Hat – The Big Picture hat: What did we set out to do? What was our task?

White Hat – The Fact Finder: What did we need to know how to do before we could start? What have we found out since?

Yellow Hat – The positive thinker: What worked really well? What are the good points? Why did it work so well?

Black Hat – The negative thinker: What didn’t work so well? Why was this?

Red Hat – The emotional thinker: How did I feel when making my game? How did I feel when it went well? How did I feel when it didn’t go so well?

Green Hat – The creative thinker: What other ways are there of making your game? What would you do differently next time? What would you change about your game if you had time?

Advert – Talk for Writing Text

For your homework over the next week, try to learn this advert by heart.

You could draw a text map to help you.
