5K – What am I?

Year 5 have been working hard to write their own riddles about something space-related. We focused on using different sentence openers and saving our more obvious clues for the end. The riddles should be difficult to guess but not impossible!

Please feel free to read a few, and comment in the reply section with your guess. We will approve all the reply comments on the first day back in January so that children can see how successful their riddles were! We hope you enjoy solving them and we wish you a wonderful Christmas break!
