October Half-term Literacy Homework

We have been so impressed with your homework this half term! Well done Y5!


Next half-term, we will be starting our new topic ‘Stargazers’.


For your homework, conduct some research into our new topic. Record what you learn in your homework book or by using ICT.


Top tip- Avoid copying big chunks of information from the Internet. Try to put facts in your own words.



Some ideas for your research could be:

  • Space travel

  • The Solar System

  • The stars and constellations

  • The planets

  • Life in outer space!
