English Homework:
Strange Holidays

©1998 Gareth Pitchford

Imagine that you're going on holiday. You could be going somewhere in the UK or you could be going somewhere abroad. Choose a place to visit and write a list of all the things that you would need to take with you. Think carefully about your list. You have to imagine that you are in charge of the holiday so don't rely on your mum or dad to bring anything that you forget.

Now imagine that you are going on holiday in space. Your holiday destination is another planet! Use your previous list to help you write a new list of what you would need to take on a holiday in space. Are there any things that are on both lists?

Bring both your lists into school. If you have any spare time you could try writing a postcard from your holiday on another planet.
