The Spaceship

Answer the questions in complete sentences.

R is for Rocket, S is for Space, U is for Universe, P is for planet


Can you write some adjectives (describing words), verbs (doing words), or adverbs (often ends in ly and modifies other words), beginning with those letters on the rocket templates.




Maybe even make your own 3D rocket and write the words on the sides.

Making a Time Capsule

What is a Time Capsule?           

time capsule is a container that holds present day items, such as photos, newspapers, letters and more. It records history right now, and it is put away so that in the future we can remember what this time was like.

You can complete this Time Capsule and look back on it in years to come. Put the finished sheets in a labelled time capsule box and make a note on the calendar to look back at them at the end of the year.

Store the box somewhere safe and dry. You could also take some photos of a typical day in your household and put these in too.

In the future, people will look back upon this period the year 2020, as a major event in our history. This time won’t last forever. So you, can create your own time capsule based on your life at the moment, and in the future, you will be telling your grandchildren about what it was like!

Print out the following PDF’s:

  1. Objects to put into a capsule
  2. A letter to my future self
  3. My home learning diary (remember Samuel Pepys’ diary about the Great Fire of London),
  4. Time capsule activities.

You might also like to make an outdoor time capsule, and bury it in the garden.
