This is a short film about an alien who visits earth.

As you are watching, think about what he sees as he travels to different places on Earth and write a log for each of the main events.  This might take you a couple days to produce.

For an extra challenge, think how he might describe unfamiliar objects as he might not know the names of these objects.

Look at the examples below for ideas:


Today’s lesson is to research information about spacesuits and find an interesting way to present your information.

  • What is the job of a spacesuit?

This week, you will be learning about the phases of the moon.  Your first task is to observe the moon each night.  Record the shape of the moon on the grid below.  Do this for a full month (or more).  What do you notice?  (If you can’t see the moon due to it being cloudy, just draw a cloud picture in the appropriate place.

I wonder who will manage to keep up their record for the full month?

Do you believe in aliens?

Think about the planet that you researched.  What would an alien be like if it could survive on that planet?  What would it be called?  Below are some ideas for creatures that could live on Mars or Jupiter, but these are just ideas.  You might design something completely different.

Draw, paint or make a model of your alien and describe it, explaining why it has those particular features.

I can’t wait to see what you come up with!


Barnsley Music Festival Online

Hi Year 4 brass players,

As this year’s music festival couldn’t go ahead, Barnsley Music Services are putting together an alternative to help to give children an opportunity to work towards a performance.

They will be able to learn how to play part of ‘In the Hall of the Mountain King’ via online learning.  Please click on the link below for the further information and resources to support you.


The final arrangements for how young people can join in with the performance on Friday 26th June will appear on the website above very soon once finalised.

I hope that some of you will support this event.
