English

Job application

Can you imagine what it would be like to be an astronaut? What things would you do? What skills would you need?

Today you are going to write a job application to become an astronaut! Have a really good think about the skills you will need and why you would be so good at the job!

Now have a go at writing your application to be an astronaut. You can write this as a letter and explain why you want to be an astronaut and what would make you a good astronaut.

Remember to think about what skills you have that would be good and give some examples too!

You can use this template as a guide on how to set your application letter out.

Maths

This week we are going to be looking at subtraction so I would like you to practise counting backwards. Imagine you are an astronaut counting down to blast off.

Can you count down from 10? 15? 20? or even from 50?

You may need your 100 square to help you.

Watch the video and have a go at the worksheet underneath.

Show your calculations in a practical way to help with understanding.

Theme

Today I would like you to find out about ‘The Wright Brothers’. They were famous for inventing something. I wonder if you can guess what it might be?

Using the document below or your own research try and answer the following questions.

What were the brothers called?

What did they invent?

What made them want to fly?

What helped the brothers understand how to make wings?

How long was the first flight?

How do you think they felt when their invention was successful?

Can you make a paper plane using ideas from the shape of birds wings?

Here are a few ideas to get you started.

How far will your plane travel? How long will it stay up in the air? Let us know how you get along.

Extra challenges for the week!

I have set you some fun, extra challenges on Purple Mash this week, do them as and when you feel like it!
