Ask somebody to read the Beegu story to you while you do the actions you have made.

Beegu text

You are going to create your own alien character – it can look like anything you want! If you would like to use the alien you made in D.T. then that would be great! If not, draw a picture of your own alien in your home learning book and give it a name. If you are struggling for ideas, click on the link below.

Alien Ideas

Now you have created and named your alien character you are going to write a description of it. Think back to the sentences you wrote describing Beegu. You used some fantastic WOW words (adjectives and verbs). Try and use ‘and’ or other conjunctions. Maybe you could even use some alliteration. Try and write at least 3 sentences.


Aa – capital letters                            Sp – use your phonics to spell

finger spaces                                      CE – spell tricky words correctly

. – full stops                                       WOW – use exciting words

ABC – make capital letters the biggest

abc – form letters correctly

pqht – form ascenders and descenders correctly

When you have finished, read your description to somebody in your family. You could share it in the comments or email your description and a picture of your alien and we will share it on the website.  Send it to:

Practise with your magic pencil in the air. Ask someone in your family to put a little bit of flour, salt or sugar (any powder will do) on a plate and practise making o in it.

Now practise writing o on the sheet in your home learning pack. Remember to start at the top and stay inside the grey line.



Can you remember when the English composer, Gustav Holts, wrote The Planets Suite?

So far you have listened to four movements from The Planets Suite:

Mercury – The Winged Messenger

Venus – The Bringer of Peace

Earth – The Bringer of Life

Mars – The Bringer of War

Today you are going to listen to Jupiter – The Bringer of Jollity.

Do you know what the word jollity means? Do you think this piece of music will sound the same as the others? Why do you think that?

What instruments do you think you can hear? What is the tempo like? Does the music stay at the same tempo? What is the volume of the music like? Does the music stay at the same volume? How does the music make you feel?

Find the musical instrument you made a few weeks ago and play along with the music.

Can you dance to the music? How does the music make you want to move? Will your movements be fast or slow? Will they be smooth and floaty or sharp and jerky?

Talk to an adult or family member about the music. What do they think of it?
