Lost in Space: A Transmission of Hope - Whole School License
This is Commander Jack Ferguson, Star Date April 19th, 2074.
It’s been six months since the accident. Provisions are low and in the interest of saving power, I’ve decided that this will be my final transmission.
Imagine being part of the first manned mission to Mars. Now imagine being stranded there alone following an accident that was not your fault. How will you survive? How will stay positive and focus on the hope that one day you'll return home?
This pack encourages your learners to write and record a transmission home and considers how to maintain a positive mindset when you are alone and faced with a difficult situation.
This pack is aimed at Key Stages 2 & 3.
This pack includes:
- Comprehension lessons that integrate and develop core reading skills at Word, Sentence and Text Level.
- Writing lessons that encourage collaborative learning and independent creative writing that embeds grammar in a meaningful way and helps learners understand what it mean to be a real writer, one who writes for an authentic purpose and with a particular audience in mind.
- Performance lessons that develop reading fluency and a deeper understanding of their own work and that of others, as well as help improve personal social skills and confidence.
By the end of each Unit of Work, teachers will have written and video evidence of each of their learner's work, work that can be shared with a wider audience and be assessed for moderation and inform future planning.
