This week we are starting a new class book called The Darkest Dark by Chris Hadfield. Below you can find the front cover of the book. Your task is to predict what you think the book is about, who are the characters and what will happen. I would like you to try and use the conjunction ‘because’ to justify your predictions. Use the title, the author and the illustrations to help you.


For example: I predict the book will be about space because there is a rocket.



The author is a real astronaut, from Canada, and he has spent nearly 4000 hours in space! When you have finished your predictions, you can watch these videos about the author on board the international space station.


Extra Challenge: Why is predicting an important skill?
