I hope your Space Project learning has got off to a good start.  I've already had some amazing work sent in.
Here are today's activities.  You can do them in any order and you don't have to do them all if you don't have enough time, but please work hard on the activities that you choose to do.
F
or those of you who are in school today, have fun with Mrs Matthews and Mrs Acheson! 

Today, I'm doing the Collective Worship, so please join in by finding this picture on the School News Page or look at the list at the left of this  Class 2 Page :

 

 P.E:

Maybe you would like to 'wake up and shake up' with some exercise or perhaps later in the day.  Choose a time when you will do some exercise today. Have you decided what you're going to do?  Maybe more than one thing.  You might like to do one of the activities below, or maybe go for a walk, run or do some cycling. 
 You could do an exercise routine with Joe Wicks, find a fun activity on GoNoodle or try something new like yoga:  https://www.harrogatessp.com/keeping-all-young-people-active/

 



Reading:

Listen to  the story Look Up! read by the author and then take part in a drawing session with the book’s illustrator. 

Please click on the book to start.  
You will need a piece of paper and a black felt tip or marker pen, and a pencil, or colouring pencils or pens.  See if you can follow the illustrator's instructions to create a picture of one of the characters in the book.

I hope that you are enjoying reading space stories and information books from your bookshelf at home.

Try to spend at least twenty minutes reading. This can be reading a book aloud or sharing a book with an adult. 

Year 2 -You can do an AR quiz when you have finished your  book: https://ukhosted79.renlearn.co.uk/6706937/
                                                                                                                                                                                                     
Writing:
 
Rocket Writing!  
Now that you have designed your rocket, can you create an advertisement of the rocket launch?  Make you poster bright and exciting. Tell everyone when and where the launch will take place. How much will it cost? What time will it launch? Is there anything else on offer for the visitors to do?
Here’s a real rocket launch for you to watch, to get some ideas 
 
  Click on the picture to watch.  
 



Phonics and Spelling:
Please write your spelling words into the spelling log
Year 1 - This week we’re working on ‘y’ sounds like ‘ee’
Year 2 – Time words
Please write 3 sentences, each with at least one of the words from your spelling list.
 

Maths:
Measuring activities: Length
Watch to remind ourselves about measuring  https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zbwc92p
and https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zdw7tfr
 
Find a book in your house. Can you find three items which are longer than the book and three items which are shorter? Order the items from longest to shortest. Measure the items to work out the difference in lengths.
 
Can you write down the name of each family member in order from tallest to shortest.
You could also measure family members using a measuring tape to find what their height is in metre and cms.
Is the tallest person the oldest person or not?
Discuss why this might not be true.
 
Maths Challenges:  
Also, for those of you who would like to do a maths challenge.  Have a go at these questions! 


(Yesterday's answers: 1. Eva has 68p   2.  50)    
 

Be kind and help others
Have you done anything to help someone else today?  Try to do a kind act for someone else. It might be to help with something or it might be to do something to cheer up another person.  A friendly wave and smile through the window can mean a lot to someone who is lonely.


                                                                                         
 
The Learning Project this week is Space.  You might find out about 
our Solar System, the Sun and the Moon.  You could look at life in outer space from the view of an astronaut and travelling through space.  Enjoy your journey through Space!

 Rocket Creation-      
As part of one of your writing tasks, you have been asked to design a rocket.
Can you create your rocket using objects you can find in the home such as cardboard boxes, newspapers and tin foil.
Can you write a set of instructions about how to make the model,  to share with a family member or friend?


Drawing and Colouring Pictures-
You might like to create a space themed picture, using collage, paints, pens or pencils.

 If you like colouring in pictures, here are some for you to print:    -t-t-26681-space-themed-mindfulness-colouring-pages-_ver_2.pdf-  

    

 
 
 
Our Solar System-
Think about what you already know about space and create a mind map. Draw pictures and diagrams or write notes on a piece of paper to remind yourself about what you already know.
 
Can you name the planets in our solar system?
Use the Solar System Song  (click )  to create a diagram showing the order of the planets.
Also, here's another song to help you to learn facts about the planets: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F2prtmPEjOc

You could make model planets using balloons and paper mache.

Astronaut Aerobics-   
Astronauts have to be fit and agile for their missions into space.
Can you design a home workout and put your agility to the test!
You could even use this (click) video to help.
You could then plan a day of healthy eating for the aspiring astronauts, thinking carefully about each food group.

What are Day and Night?-  Watch the video of day and night. (click) 
Then create a poster about day and night explaining why we have day and night.
Play the quiz and see how many answers you can get right!
 
 
 Is There Anything out There? 

Tim Peake
 is a famous British astronaut. (click on his name for more information)
Write the questions that you would ask him if you could interview him.
Pretend to be Tim Peake and ask an adult to read out the questions that you wrote down.
Can you answer the questions in your role as him?
 
Design a space suit
Can you design a new space suit for Tim Peake? What would make a good space suit?
