Hi everyone! I hope that you are all safe and well and had a good weekend. If you aren’t in school then you should be continuing to complete your remote home learning.
**Please just do what work you can and please please don’t worry if you don’t do it all. I’d rather give you lots to keep you busy than not enough. If you wish to do alternative activities, that is also absolutely fine. Just do what is right for your family situation. Also, if you become stuck or are unsure, please just ask me. **
Today’s activities are as follows:

Find out about the Solar System by reading these two sources – making notes as you read about each planet:
Planetarium Junior Edition by Raman Prinja (attached below)
National Geographic Kids – The Solar System: https://www.natgeokids.com/wp-content/uploads/2017 /11/The-Solar-System- Primary-Resource.pdf
Now enjoy this rap on YouTube about the Solar System, ‘Outer Space: “We are the Planets,” The Solar System Song by StoryBots – Netflix Jr’ here:
Based on what you have read and watched, create your own rap, song or poem about the Solar System.
You may create your rap, song or poem in different ways, such as:
• Use the rap you listened to on YouTube as a starting point and edit some of the lyrics/ add to the existing lyrics to create your own version.
• Choose one part of the Solar System to create your rap/song or poem about e.g. your favourite planet.
• Choose your favourite type of poem such as a limerick, haiku or acrostic and use this to write about the Solar System.
Make sure you keep practising your rap, song or poem by reading it aloud and editing as you write.
Once you have finished, have a go at performing it to someone in your house. If possible, you could also record it to send to your teacher!
If you are feeling really creative, why not make a music video to support your performance too!
