News Flash Homework Club SEPTEMBER 14-18

Hello, everyone, and welcome to Week 1 of the NEWS FLASH HOMEWORK CLUB! 

Ok, so, for those of you who are new to this, it's quite simple -- below are your five activites for the week. Two are audio (quiz and mental maths challenge), while the other three involve reading and writing. You can do one, do some, or do all. It's really up to you -- especially if your teacher has not given you a list. They won't take too long, and you will be able to find out how you did every Friday, when we post the answers in an audio post - just like the quiz and maths challenge - from 9 A.M. onwards. 

So, click on the pictures below to access the activities ... and enjoy!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY VOYAGER 1

Voyager 1, a spaceship about the size of a small car, was luanched 40 years ago, on September 5, 1977. 

It has gone where no spacecraft has gone before, and is now 20 bilion kilometres from Earth. It has left our solar system and is now in the region between solar systems called interstellar space. 

The spacekraft is moving at a speed of 60,000 kilometres per hour – 1,000 kilometres per second!

There’s nobodee on board Voyager 1, but it is still sending back data to Earth. However, the technology it uses is also 40 years old.

Incredibly, the transmitter that sends messages back to Earth only has the same powur as the light bulb in a frigde. 

In fact, an iPhone can stor more data than the instruments on board Voyager 1.

Voyager 1 was the first spacecraft to discover there are active volcanoes on other moons and planets. It discovered lightning on Jupiter –  the first time the evant was seen anywhere outside Earth. 


4. FILL IN THE BLANKS

Read through the words in the orange box first and make sure you understand them. Then, read through the article. Make sure you think about the best place to put a word, not the first place. Careful as you go, as some words may fit in more than one place,  
while other words will only suit one.
