In our lessons, we read about space exploration, what it's like to live in space and the history of space travel. From this, we wrote captions onto a picture of Earth. We then cut out the Earth and a space shuttle and assembled them with a paper fastener to show how a shuttle orbits Earth.
In English, we read and discussed fantasy stories about aliens, including 'Here Come the Aliens' by Colin McNaught. We created our own alien puppets and invented names and stories for them. In groups, we planned and acted out a short story between our 3 alien characters. We then used these ideas to write our own alien story.
