Space Home Learning

Here are a range of space related homework activities. It is expected that you complete one each week and we will find time to share our projects with each other. This is in addition to weekly maths and spellings.

You have this home learning until October half term so there is no rush! Enjoy!!

    1. Create your own space themed top trumps cards. 

2.  You are going on a spaceship and can only take 10 things with you. What will you take? Either write or draw them in your suitcase.

You are going to meet some aliens on another planet. What 10 things would you take as presents for them? Draw them in a gift box.

3. Make an acrostic for one of the planets

e.g. M




This could be a list of words beginning with each letter, a sentence for each line or even a rhyme.

4. Find out facts about the space missions –

       What was the first creature sent into space?

       Who was the first astronaut?

       Who was the first man on the moon?

What other interesting facts can you find?
