All About Space
We posted some resources about space last week and as this is such an interesting topic, we have a few more great resources you might find interesting.
Life as an Astronaut
In Year 5A, we watched a couple of videos by Astronaut Chris Hadfield when he was in Space. He talked about life on the International Space Station. If you want to find out more about being an astronaut, there is a fantastic programme hosted by Chris Hadfield that the BBC are showing (it was originally shown in 2017). It is called Astronauts: Do You Have What It Takes?
There are more clips here:
Maybe one day you could join them and see if you have what it takes to be an astronaut and explore space from the International Space Station!
Explore the Solar System from home!
Another exciting app you could try is SkyLite which is free - make sure you ask your parent or carer before downloading. This app lets you see what the different stars are you can see in the sky. If you wait until it is dark and hold the app by the window or in your garden and point it to the stars, it will tell you what constellations or planets there are!

Try out these different resources related to your learning about simple machines (levers, gears and pulleys). Can you find examples of these simple machines or even make your own? If you're not sure on some of the vocabulary in these resources, use a dictionary or google the definition.
Would you like to explore Space? You've come to the right place! We will be adding lots of exciting resources to do with our Year 5 topic of Earth and Space onto this page.

Can you upload anything you have found out on the class blog?
Choose a different activity each day and make a poster about what you have learnt.
Do some research on planets and write down what you have found out – this could be a non-chronological report, a newspaper report or an explanation text.
