Space Travel!

Home Learning 5.11.13&6.11.13

In Literacy next week we will be learning how to write effective non-chronological reports. In ICT you will be publishing your writing as an e-book.

Your mission is to create a unique non-chronological report about SPACE TRAVEL. You will need to focus on one particular area of space travel – see examples below. If you have a different idea let me know.

Animals in Space

Moon landings

Mars landings

Space travel gone wrong

Apollo 11

Apollo 13

Life of the I.S.S.

By Thursday you need to have chosen the topic of your report, and decided on the subheadings. Four or five subheadings is about right, this will be how you are going to organise your finished report. You also need to research and write some notes under each subheading. This could be done as written notes or as a mind map.

On Friday in ICT you will be beginning to create your e-book and next week in literacy we will be drafting and editing the different paragraphs.

Good luck Space Explorers!

One small step for man..... (great Apollo 11 website:

Number Spirals

  1. Begin at the star at the top of the circle. Choose a number from 2 to 9. Move clockwise that many dots around the circle, e.g. if you choose the number 4, you would stop at dot 4.
  2. Use your ruler and a pencil to draw a line from the star to the new dot.
  3. Move clockwise again around the circle, counting out your chosen number of dots, e.g. if you chose 4, this time you would stop at 8. Connect the end of your last line to the new dot.
  4. Keep counting dots and drawing lines until you reach the star again.
  5. You could then draw another spiral over the top by choosing another number.

How does the shape of the spiral change as the number chosen increases?

Have you found a strategy for drawing the spirals without having to keep counting dots?

Top Tip:

Be precise and accurate or it will not work. Use a ruler and a sharp pencil.

Finally, you can colour your spiral and bring it in to wow your classmates!
