Learning Project - To be completed throughout the week

Here is an overview of tasks I’d like the Year 1 children to be completing at home over the next 2 weeks.



Space – full of limited possibilities! Mr Smith has been working with the Boston Space Association to look beyond our solar system.
Design a planet, using either coloured pencils or paints that our astronauts may see!



Space X have recently helped NASA launch a new rocket to the International Space Station! As a new engineer for Space X, you have been tasked to design a rocket to go to the moon.
What would this look like? What might the rocket need? Create a prototype once you have made your plan.



Take part in the daily Joe Wicks School Gym Workout at home, potentially with your family. These are uploaded daily to Joe’s Youtube channel – link can be found under the ‘Remote Learning’ tab on the school website.



Investigate the Moon Landing. Who was involved in the moon landing? How did they get to the moon? What did they do when they got there?
Consider watching a video of the rocket launch and footage from moon walks.



Research the planets of the solar system. How many planets are in the solar system? What is one interesting fact about each planet?



Read through and discuss the Story of Zacchaeus. Discuss the key events of the story. Why do you feel the other citizens felt that way? How did Zacchaeus receive forgiveness? Why do you think he was forgiven?
