Writing task - This week in school we have been reading the book 'Beegu' and wrote a 'Guide to Earth' for our alien friend. Have a go at writing another 'Guide to...' something. It could be a guide to riding a bike or making a cake, for example. I bet you can think of some better things to write about. Remember to include enough detail in your paragraphs and add pictures to make it really clear as Beegu might not understand what you are talking about otherwise.
Or ... if you prefer ...
Why not write your own story about aliens? Maybe they came to St Joseph's one day. I wonder what they would get up to.
