Dear diary,

It has now been 2 years since we moved here. Leaving Earth was tough, but we are beginning to feel more at home with every single week that passes.

When we came to our new home, we were allowed to bring everything with us from our Earth homes. It still feels a bit strange though. Life without gravity really takes some getting used to!

Can you continue the diary?

What is gravity? Can you include descriptions of what it is like to live without it?

Where is it that you now live? How is it different from your previous life? How do you spend your time? Do you prefer living in your new home?

Grammar this week is using commas. Watch the PowerPoint first and then complete the PACE sheets. I've included the answers for you to self mark.
